The Beveling Tool with instructions
SKU: [1306B]

WEAIT MUSIC has re-named their BEVELING JIG because we’ve added a SANDING CHANNEL to it. Now we’re calling it BEVELING TOOL WITH SANDING CHANNEL. The SANDING CHANNEL is on the reverse side from the BEVELING V-cut.

The SANDING CHANNEL allows the reed maker to sand the gouged side of gouged or gouged and shaped cane in the area that will be under the reed blades in the finished reed. Marks on the edges of the SANDING CHANNEL show the recommended sanding area. The SANDING CHANNEL is not recommended for helping to correct deficiencies in the gouged surface.

“I have found the Weait No-Hands system ideal for performance injury prevention and recovery. The easy-to-use strap releases all weight from the left hand allowing the bassoon to balance without any assistance from the performer. This crucial element of weight and counter-balance removed from the left hand provides injured players the opportunity to continue practicing with no pain!
