Topic: Westwind Shapers

Just a quick question.

Looking to buy a shaper (and tip) and need to know what handles they(Westwind...Brannen X to be exact) fit.  Thanks!

Re: Westwind Shapers

I have a Sorton tip, by Westwind, which fits just fine in both my Jeanne and Bhosys handles.  The shank seems to be a typical, standard size.

Re: Westwind Shapers

The shank on a Westwind shaper tips is 1/8 inch, as is the receiver in the handle. This should fit everyone's tips...

Re: Westwind Shapers

I have a rigotti shaper tip and handle and the 3 tips I own from Westwind fit well. Well, I had to file down my EH tip's shank a bit for it to fit snugly, but other than that the oboe tips fit like a glove.
