Double reed instruments are unique within the family of wind instruments. Their reeds feature two pieces of cane that vibrate against one another when a musician blows against them, which differs from single reed instruments. Within the family of double reeds there are a number of different instruments, each with their own distinct characteristics. With this in mind, it’s important to have an idea of what sound or style you’re looking for before you make your purchase. Generally, the instruments considered to be a part of the double reed family include the bassoon, the oboe, and the English horn. The bassoon is known for its wide range and warm, dark timbre, while on the other end of the spectrum, the oboe’s penetrating timbre allows it to easily stand out amongst large ensembles. The English horn, while similar to the oboe, offers a slightly more wistful tone. These are all vastly different instruments so it’s definitely wise to understand their differences while making your decision. Materials used in the construction of double reed instruments can have a serious impact on their sound. Double reed instruments made mostly from plastic are generally durable and easier to care for, making them ideal for younger and novice players. Professional players or those with more experience will definitely want to invest in an instrument made of wood. Wooden instruments generally produce a warmer sound that is more representative of the instrument. One thing to remember about a wooden double reed instrument is that they require more maintenance than a plastic instrument, so it is crucial that you understand how to take care of your instrument to ensure years of enjoyment. A double reed instrument will bring charmingly distinct sounds to your home as well as your musical groups. Whether you are new to the world of these instruments, or a seasoned professional looking to add to your collection, there is a double reed that will perfectly suit your needs.
