This is authentic Rigotti Contrabassoon cane, grown in France and gouged & shaped by Rigotti by skilled craftsmen. Each piece has been shaped, gouged and cut to 142mm in length. This item is sold in bundles of 10 pieces.
Rigotti cane is grown 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 split and gouged into bassoon cane. This cane is selected for consistent stiffness, straightness, and diameter. The gouge is eccentric on Rigotti cane, resulting in cane that is thicker in the center of the piece.
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.
