Bassoon Forming Mandrel - Rieger F5B
Forming mandrels are used in reed making to mold cane into the proper shape.
Rieger's F5B forming mandrel has a flattened tip that helps minimize the likeliness of cracking when first inserting the mandrel. Markings along mandrel indicate the correct placement stop at, improving accuracy and consistency in the forming process. The ergonomic handle is great for reed makers who form in large batches.
