Life of Reed

Susanne Regel

Video of the very distinguished German hautboyistin Susanne Regel scraping a reed for you from start to finish. I find it interesting that her reed style bears many similarities to long-scrape American reeds, and her technique in many ways parallels that described in the Weber-Capps "Reed Maker's Manual." Presented by David Tayler's "Voices of Music" video series.

Susanne's own web site, with some lovely images, videos, and recordings is at
