This is authentic Rigotti Bassoon tube cane, grown in France by Rigotti. Each piece is harvested, aged for more than 2 years, sorted by diameter, cleaned, waxed, and cut before being sold. This is the 23-24mm diameter cane offered by Rigotti and we package them into 1/2 pound (226 gram) bags that are ready to be split, gouged, and made into reeds.
Rigotti cane is grown in the Var region of France, which has been cultivating Arundo Donax cane for generations. Their cane is harvested by hand and naturally dried for over two years before being sold. This results in cane with maximum stability and balance.
Rigotti cane is known for its consistency, and is often described as a ‘workhorse’ brand of cane. It is dependable and relatively consistent from batch to batch. As a natural product, there is of course variation from piece to piece and year to year, but skilled hands can more often than not find success using this cane. We especially recommend this cane if you are new to making reeds.
