Story In analysing the root of my reed problem - i.e. constant
frustration with reeds that did not last well or died on me mid-performance -
it became clear to me that the problem was the deterioration in the quality of
the cane. With this in mind I set out to find the source of the highest quality
cane available. I was most fortunate to find this cane from the Var, on land
near the mountains, once quarried for marble. The marble in the form of silica
actually works its way up into the roots of this marvelous cane and this is may
be why reeds made from it last so long. This is Arundo Donax cane and has
become a precious and premium commodity. Our Arundo Donax cane with a balance
ratio of well developed fibre to pulp, furnishes the reed with resilient
"spring" endurance. We make sure that the cane is aged and sun dried to give it
the maturity and stability necessary to transform it into a reed that will
perform to high standards.
