Product Description by our Music Experts

The BD2 Windeler bassoon has a very warm and round sound whilst still being very responsive. They are made in Germany and suit good amateur to advanced players very well.

Perfect for amateur to advanced bassoonists

The Windeler bassoon reed BD2 is designed for amateur to advanced players and can be used in any playing position, i.e. 1st Bassoon, 2nd Bassoon, Solo Repertoire, etc. as the reed is designed to be an 'all rounder' reed. This means that plays well across the whole range of the bassoon and the reeds enable you to play at a wide range of dynamic levels.

Warm and Responsive

It has a warm and rounded 'Germanic' sound which is very full bodied. The Windeler bassoon reed is responsive making it fairly easy to play. The reed is of a medium strength.

Long lasting German Windeler quality

Windeler bassoon reeds are made in Germany by one of Windelers past pupils. The cane and raw materials are handpicked to ensure every reed is of the highest quality.

Somewhat difficult

The two Windeler reeds I bought because they are somewhat higher in pitch, were not at all alike. One was much harder, in the other one I spotted weak D and E in the middle register. After playing them in, this improved somewhat. But nothing like the handiness of KGE and Academy reeds, for example.

Windeler Bassoon reeds

Always used Windeler as my go to reliable, consistent Reed. Having not used them for while I came back to them and ordered 4 all super excited, but unfortunately they did not live up to my expectations - either something has changed with them or me - I can’t find one that I like -!!! I’ll put it down to covid as that’s what we are blaming everything on this year :weary::weary:

Great Reed

I really liked the tone of this reed however it still made my playing quite sharp.

Really good high notes!

This plays high notes beautifully, and perfectly in tune. I had some difficulty though with middle C, and the B & A below it.

BD2 Reeds

Pretty good all-rounder reeds, but they required a little cajoling to play the way I like.

Hello Clare,
The great thing about reeds is they can be altered to suit the player, we are pleased you have some reeds that after a little 'cajoling' suit you. Happy reed happy player! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.
Best wishes,
Eliza @ Crook & Staple

Very pleased as both reeds

Very pleased as both reeds worked straight away, good sound. Good recommendation for a mediocre bassoonist such as myself!
