Re: Bassoon Reed Wiring

I know I've seen string wrapping machines, but I've never heard of a wiring machine. I'm sure they must exist, as I'm sure the Jones, Emerald, and other highly mass-produced reeds must have some automation in there, but it seems that this would probably be a rather expensive device for something that can be done by hand very easily and with little stress to your hands. I would also think such a machine wouldn't be terribly accurate.

I'd bet Jim Poe has either developed one, or is thinking about one.  It's amazing what a good engineer can come up with when given a task to focus on.

Re: Bassoon Reed Wiring

are you referring to using pin vises around the first and second wires? or is that an entirely different variable that has nothing to do with this question?
