    Dear List

    I have to play the Dulcian in my job, but need some facts about the reeds.

    1) Where can I by them?

    2) Are the reeds for Dulcian about the same size/measurements ar the baroque bassoon?

    3) Any suggestins where to buy these instruments?

    James Kopp makes a bass dulcian reed. (koppreeds.com) I haven’t tried it and have only played the Tenor Dulcian myself. Someone told me that a tenor dulcian could work ok with a standard bassoon reed and a bass dulcian with a contra reed. I might just be making that up, though. I took an old bassoon reed and cut it down a bit and did a sort of oboe scrape to it. Sounded terrible, but it worked. Take some old junky reeds and just experiment a bit.

    The Early Music Shoppe in the U.K. might be a better bet for you though. Their website is http://www.e-m-s.com Again, I have not tried their products, I’m only telling you what I have found. Also try contacting Guntram Wolf in Germany. He specializes in making historical instruments and might have some wonderful products and information for you. http://www.guntramwolf.de (English and Deutsch versions available)
