This is authentic Glotin Bassoon tube cane, grown in France by Glotin. Each piece is harvested, aged for more than 2 years, sorted by diameter, cleaned, waxed, and cut before being sold. This is the 24mm diameter cane offered by Glotin and we package them into 1/2 pound (226 gram) bags that are ready to be split, gouged, and made into reeds.
Glotin cane is grown in the Var region of France and finished in Langy sur Marne near Paris. The cane is harvested by hand and then naturally dried for over two years before being sold. This results in cane with maximum stability and balance. Glotin cane tends to have thicker walls and dense vasular system. It tends to be a little softer than other brands, and has a bit more natural variation as well. Reeds made from Glotin cane have a wonderful sound, but the variation between pieces means the successful yield may be lower than other brands you are used to. We recommend this cane to players with at least some experience already making reeds.
