Topic: Baroque Bassoon Reeds
I am doing some baroque bassooning again soon and have for years been experimenting with (and being frustrated by) reeds and finally got around to posting questions on this forum.
I am playing on a Stanesby Junior by Philip Levin and own a Rieger B5 shaper and using GP cane from Rieger.
A couple of questions:
1 Is the B5 a compatible shape for this instrument?
2 Are there some good "starting point" or general micrometer blade measurements I can rely on?
