What is a good brand of store-bought bassoon reeds? Right now I am using Jones, but they don't sound very good. Also, are there any hand-made reeds that are really good, but not crazy expensive? I am just playing bassoon for a musical, but would prefer to sound good lol.
I've been recommended to Charles reeds, they have a website, Charlesmusic.com I believe. I haven't actually gotten to ordering any yet, but I've heard many good things about them and they look like a very nice establishment judging by the website. Their reeds are made to order and they can ship right to you or your local shop, I believe.
