Alliaud Oboe Cane: Gouged (per 10)
The cane is 10.5-11mm in diameter and the gouge leaves the cane approximately 0.58mm thick.
Was a special request Christmas gift for my granddaughter. She makes her own reeds and was delighted with the cane.
My first attempt at reed-making with these reeds came out well enough to crow, in tune, fairly easily with air pressure. They look good quality without stains. BAD MARK: only 9 reeds in the bundle, which is a niggle as it's only around £1.60 per reed, so less than price of a coffee!
The cane was at a great price and came as expected. The only issue was a few of the pieces had small cracks but are usable.
Swift service, carefully packaged, good product.
