Maintenance

Free Reed Maintenance coming soon!

Free-reed instruments are generally bellows-driven, in which moving air vibrates a reed in a chamber to produce the sound. In free reeds, the pitch is determined by the reed's length, thickness and stiffness. In some free-reed models, compressing or expanding the bellows moves the air in different directions across the reed, producing distinct sounds.
