Reed Measurements

The Professional and Student reeds that are available are the medium reed measurements below. The Pro and Student reeds differ from each other in that the Pro reed is made over a longer period of time, yielding a reed that produces a more complex and darker tonal quality. The Student reed is brighter and less able to produce nuances.
