Having begun playing bassoon in December, I have already exceeded the senior bassoonist at our school in playing ability. when I first began to play, I ordered 3 Jones reeds and 3 Woodwind reeds. I believe Jones reeds give a haunting, very smooth tone. With Woodwind reeds this is not the case, but I will still continue to buy them for one important reason. MARCHES! Every bassoonist knows that in concert marches, they may as well not play because they're NEVER going to be heard over the whole band. However, this reed may even the playing field in a big way. These reeds have a very biting tone, and they are, while more coarse in the general feel of the sound they produce, still easy to control and tune with, especially if you can have your director or a private instuctor shave them to your specifications. I find I can play about as loud as a baritone or trombone playing mf-f on this reed at it's loudest, while I'm comparitively about an mp dynamic on a Jones reed. This reed serves a definate purpose in my playing and I will rely on it, if not for a smooth and controlled solo, than to match the tuba in it's ferocity and umph(!) in concert marches for years to come.
When I first started playing bassoon over a year ago I bought two fox reeds and two Woodwind & Brasswind reeds. The fox reeds sounded very soft and difficult to produce a good sound. I struggled a lot to be heard over the low brass, the also deteriorated quickly. The W&B reeds sounded very loud, and clear. I had no trouble being heard in marching band events and playing with accent and style in concerts, not to mention these reads almost last a year without chipping or losing their sound. Overall, the Woodwind & Brasswind reeds are highly recommended by me for any begging student whether marching or concert band. I will continue trying out many different types of reads but for now, these are the best for me, and will live up to the most discrete of players!
My daughter has been playing bassoon for about six months, and we recently ordered several brands of reeds online from WWBW.com. This one was the only one with problems -- it was almost unplayable out of the package (too round), and it frustrated both the player and her band teacher. But when the bassoon specialist got ahold of it, it was a pretty easy fix to get it to play okay.
I've been searching for good, consistent factory reeds for a while now, and I decided to try this one. It's no Jones, and Jones really isn't anymore either, but it was a decent reed both times I've tried one. The first one played great right out of the tube, but began to generally deteriorate. The second one didn't play so well or easy, and couldn't pass the E test. Low E sounded fine, high E was stuffy, and mid E was coming out as a definite Eb. Be careful with online reeds.
I haven't tried the reed on my bassoon yet, but I got it in the mail. When I took it out of its case, I realized that it was rough and the tip was very open. After soaking it in water and shaving it a little, it still didn't produce a good sound because of the opening. However, I got a pair of pliers and carefully squeezed the first wire closest to the opening, which closed it more. When I blew into it, I immediately heard a clear, loud sound which I was very pleased with. :)
