Glotin cane is cultivated in the Var region of France, which has been cultivating Arundo Donax cane for generations. The cane is harvested by hand and naturally dried for over two years before being sent to their workshop just outside of Paris to be fashioned into semi-finished cane, blanks, and reeds. The Glotin company specializes in Double-Reed instruments, and is able to better focus on the needs of double reed players everywhere. Glotin Cane tends to have a very tight vascular system and is a bit softer than other brands. This results in a beautiful tone on finished reeds. However the variation in the cane itself does lower the yield of usable reeds when compared to other brands. As such, we recommend Glotin to more skilled reed makers that can overcome the variation to benefit from the great tonal qualities of the cane itself.
