After years of trying to adjust bulk processed Reeds students would bring to lessons, Eryn realized it would be much easier to make and sell her own reeds made from high quality cane. In 2012 she developed her own reed making company, RAFFE REEDS, named for the stuffed giraffe Spottacus, a teaching prop in her studio that the students adored.
Since launching Raffe Reeds Eryn has shipped reeds world wide. Each reed measures 26 mm tube and 29 mm blade, creating a warm robust sound. The length matches most professional and student model bassoons with minimal adjustment. The reeds have a unique cross hatch scoring that allows for displacement of cracks and a darkening of the sound.
A Raffe Reed is $25 and can easily be purchased through the convenience of Paypal. For Rush Orders, there is the additional cost of $10. Shipping and handling on domestic orders is $7. International shipping orders are calculated by location.
