Announcing our revised bassoon reed-making tool
WEAIT MUSIC has re-named their BEVELING JIG because we’ve added a SANDING CHANNEL to it. Now we’re calling it BEVELING TOOL WITH SANDING CHANNEL. The SANDING CHANNEL is on the reverse side from the BEVELING V-cut. The tool will be available at the 2014 IDRS meeting at New York University.
The SANDING CHANNEL allows the reed maker to sand the gouged side of cane in the area that will be under the reed blades in the finished reed. Marks on the edges of the SANDING CHANNEL show the limits of the sanded area.
The price will be $22.00 – only $2.00 more than the old Beveling Jig!
The BEVELING TOOL WITH SANDING CHANNEL comes with instructions for both procedures and sandpaper and a flexible plastic form to wrap the sandpaper around. Please visit our website for further details: www.weaitmusic.com
