The Best Cane
Ets Rigotti owes part of their reputation to their materials. The canes of the Var, and Cogolin regions of France are among the best in the world. Grown alongside rivers and streams, in an large area that is maintained all year round.
Rigotti Gold reeds are cut during a winter afternoon over four months from December to March. When the cane has reached maturity (after two years when it measures seven to eight meters with a diameter of 26cm to 32cm), it is cut left in the open where it will be worked on. The work on the reeds is split into stages: we use a 'plumes' to dispose of all the excess and 'feathers', we only keep the 2 or 3 meters from the base (the rest is either burned or used as bamboo). Then the tubes are cut (from the base to the top), and the knots are thrown to obtain batons suited to music. This is where the true work starts, each tube is calibrated to a particular instrument. The double reeds are for the oboe and bassoon, which must be wet to be bent and attached

Comments about Rigotti Gold Bass Clarinet Reeds:
I've been playing clarinet for 13 years and the bass clarinet for about 10 years. When I started playing I used vandoren reeds and more than half the reeds I tried needed to be adjusted or get the wall test. Three years ago I bought a box of rigalotti gold reeds. Straight out of the box I only needed to adjust one of them to get a warm, mellow tone. Try these, I'm glad I did!
