Mayer reed

Albrecht Mayer shape is one of the most requested shapes by our customers, for its design, in our section of shaped cane. Its tip of 7.04 mm turns it into a reed with a wide and dark sound but at the same time flexible in the second octave, thanks to its progression towards 4.05 at the beginning of the staple.

And naturally, for this new reed we have selected Albrecht Mayer staple from the well-known manufacturer Guercio. Albrecht Mayer staple has an oval opening of 2.6 x 2 which gives us a round sound.
