Topic: Reed shape for Renard 240
Hi, I just switched from a 1992 Fox 601 to a new Renard 240. I was wondering, what sort of shape works well for these bassoons? Previously on my 601 I had some success with a Maxym shape and the Weisberg/Goltzer special shaper made by Fox.
Of course I'll have to make some reeds with these shapes and see how they play on my new instrument, but I would be interested to see what people would recommend.
Ask not what your reed can do for you, but what you can do for your reed.
