Only the premium canes from worlds finest plantations are used for our BassoonCane.com products. These canes, selected on straightness, color and density, are hardness tested and grouped into 5 strength categories. Hardness testing is done near both ends of the gouged cane to avoid damage in the blade area. Selecting cane based on hardness reduces your failures and will save your valuable time and money in the reed-making process.
