Product Description

The Rieger Bassoon, Baroque Bassoon & Contrabassoon Reed Tip Cutter uses a highly sharpened rolling blade to cut the tip of the reeds off. There is a measurement scale engraved into the metal which allows you to either measure the desired length from the collar of the reed or the first wire which ensures that your reeds are more cut more accurately which will help make your reeds more consistent.

Key Features

  • Exact cuts every time
  • Great for traveling 
  • Measuring scale from 25-37mm to aid accurate precision
  • Cuts bassoon, baroque bassoon & contrabassoon reeds

Super sharp rotating blade

Traditional reed tip cutters use a use a chopping knife action which cuts from one side of the reed to the other which can move the reed whilst being cut and lead to a wonky cut. The Rieger bassoon reed tip cutter uses a rotating hardened steel blade to ensure even pressure across the whole of the reed when cutting. This ensures that the reed blade is cut in a perfectly straight line, every time! 

Highly portable & durable

This tool is small & light allowing you to carry it around with you in your reed tool kit. It is made from very durable metals, mainly hardened steel, so it can withstand being transported.

Precision cutting producing professional results

Consistency is key when it comes to reed making which is why there is a measuring scale etched into the metal which allows you to measure the bassoon reeds blade length either from the reeds collar or the first wire depending on which reed making methodology you use. The measuring scale goes from 25mm - 37mm allowing you to cuts bassoon reeds, baroque bassoon reeds & contrabassoon reeds all with the same reed tip guillotine.

This is a great tool.

This is a great tool. It’s easy to use and consistent in its application. The tips of my reeds are now straight and precisely measured, which has improved their playability. I highly recommend this product!

Reed guillotine

I purchased this for use with bagpipe chanter reeds and although not ideal it has worked out to give me best result of any other process I have previously used. A great piece of kit.

Dear Gordon,
It's always good to be innovative! We love hearing from customers who may not be bassoon/oboe players but are still finding the products we sell to be of great use to them.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, was there anything else we could have done to have made this a 5* experience?
Very best wishes,
Eliza @ Crook & Staple

Although I was doing okay

Although I was doing okay with a razor blade and block, I am now much more confident (and quick) at cutting tips (and trimming off the odd half millimetre)!

Rieger Bassoon Reed Tip Cutter

Very good, although the tip of the mandrel does seem to be very slightly off-centre (at least on the unit I have).
