Product Description by our Music Experts

The BD3 Windeler bassoon has a very warm and round sound and is more suited to the low and mid range of the bassoon, making it ideal for playing 2nd bassoon parts. They are made in Germany and suit good amateur to advanced players very well.

Perfect for amateur to advanced bassoonists

The Windeler bassoon reed BD3 is designed for amateur to advanced players and suits 2nd Bassoon or low bassoon parts. It is designed to be able to play very quietly when playing low on the bassoon, which can often be very hard work if the reed you are using isn't suited to playing low and quiet passages.

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.

Rachel R.
A great responsive Reed!

I sat down at orchestra and thought, I’ll do it, I’ll break in a new reed. All ranges proved very responsive, great for intonation and most importantly gave me confidence for the Figaro overture!

Windeler Bassoon Reed

Bought for my son, he said it’s easy to play, and I thought it sounded great

Ray C.
Windeler Medium Bassoon Reed (BD3)

Usual fast delivery from Crook & Staple. The reed itself was well packed and after the initial soaking played easily right from the off with no adjustments required.

Ishbel D.
Very good at lower registers

Lovely sound at the lower register but had to push hard for middle C and above. Great sound though for lowest two octaves.

Chloe S.
Great reed which plays nicely

Great reed which plays nicely through the range.

Bd 3

Very harsh sound. The first time I tried it it was ok, but since then I don’t like the sound at all.

Janice P.
Best second bassoon reed found

Coming back to playing after 35 years, I have tried lots of reeds (10+) without finding one with a good rounded tone. Not so keen on BD2, but this has been the best reed and at last I can start to discontinue using my old reeds. Play an old Fox plastic bassoon (better than many of the wooden ones for tone)
