Topic: Cane source?
Has anyone found a good source for shaped (only) Bassoon cane? I'm looking for some decently gouged Fox#2 Shaped cane to try before I go buy a new Shaper. I guess I'm rather picky..I'd like cane that is gouged about 1.2-1.25mm..equal thickness on both ends (OK--pretty egual) and is of reasonably eccentric gouge. Not interested in Profiled cane at all, I am very happy with my old Mark Popkin Profiler, and have a Rieger/Rieger Tip Profiler I like almost as well. By the way, I have found a wonderful source for Gouged Cane...Best Bassoon Cane run by Herr Wisse in Denmark (?). Several plantations to choose from, very consistent Gouge, they take PayPal so I don't have to worry about Euro conversion. I strongly recommend them. Thanks
