High range, classic, versatile professional reed with excellent acoustic potential: the original “tipo a mano” reed, made in Italy

Tipo a mano

High range professional reed with an unmistakable acoustic trait: the “classic” reed conceived by Luigi Antonelli in 1952 that has since become world famous. Excellent acoustic potential, versatility, balanced timbre in the equilibrium between the effect of the vibrancy and the warmth of the armonic richness. Our hand-finished reed remains faithful to the original idea of a high range reed: a similar, yet different alternative to the handmade reed, with its own exceptional acoustic characteristics

General characteristics:
High range, versatile reed for professional and amateur use. A classic of tradition in the original version. Excellent acoustic potential; balanced timbre

Classic, consistent, with an intense, rich, defined, brilliant, balanced flavour.

Crafting process:
All the production phases of the parts, tongue and plate are performed and monitored with particular care; the same occurs in the assembly phases, to optimise the functional and acoustic performance of the finished reed. The finishing phase, carried out by hand, ensures the basic quality aspects, preserving the integrity of the tongues while ensuring the physical appeal of an artisan product.
