  • Bagpipe Cane Drone Reed


A reed is a thin strip of material which vibrates to create a sound on a musical instrument.
Single reeds are used on the mouthpieces of clarinets and saxophones. The back of the reed is flat and is placed against the mouthpiece, the rounded top side tapers to a thin tip. These reeds are almost rectangular in shape except for the thin vibrating tip, which is curved to match the curve of the mouthpiece tip. All single reeds are shaped equally but differ in size to fit each instrument's mouthpiece.Double reeds are used on the oboe, oboe d'amore, english horn, bassoon, contrabassoon, sarrusophone, shawm and bagpipes. They are usually not used in combination with a mouthpiece; rather the two reeds vibrate against each other. Though, in the case of the crumhorn, bagpipes, and Rauschpfeife, a reed cap that contains an airway is placed over the reeds and blown without the reeds basically coming in contact with the player's mouth. Reed strengths are graded from soft to hard.There are two sorts of free reeds: framed and unframed. Framed free reeds are used on earliest Asian instruments such as the Chinese shēng, Japanese shō, and Laotian khene, and current European instruments such as the harmonium or reed organ, harmonica, concertina, bandoneón, accordion, and Russian bayan. The reed is made from cane, willow, brass or steel, and is enclosed in a rigid frame. The pitch of the framed free reed is fixed.The ancient bullroarer is an unframed free reed; it consists merely of a stone or board of wood tied to a rope which is swung around through the air to make a whistling sound. Another archaic unframed free-reed instrument is the leaf (the bilu), used in some conventional Chinese music ensembles. A leaf or long blade of grass is stretched between the sides of the thumbs and tensioned slightly by bending the thumbs to change the pitch. The tone can be customized by cupping the hands to give a significant chamber.There are normally four or five reed players in a pit orchestra who perform on all woodwind instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone).
