The Most Simple and Effective Tool of its Kind
The ReedGeek® "Universal" Reed Tool was designed to help all woodwind players (both students and professionals), adjust single and double reeds to achieve better reed performance more simply and accurately than any other reed tool on the market today. It has quickly become an industry leader and is used by the world's top woodwind professionals.
Although simplistic in appearance, the ReedGeek® "Universal" Tool's machining is anything but… Utilizing state of the art technology ReedGeeks are made from the highest grade true U.S. steel blends and are heat-treated and machined to tolerances closer than any reed tool available.
Experience the benefits of a truly flat reed
The ReedGeek® "Universal" Reed Tool enhances reed performance by rapidly and accurately flattening reed tables. Other methods for flattening reed tables, are less effective, take longer and produce less consistent results. Within 10 minutes of training, players will notice a dramatic improvement in efficiency (ease of sound production), sonic quality and responsiveness in their reeds. Users of the tool will find more "good" reeds in a box and the reeds will perform longer and more consistently over their lifetime. In effect, the tool more than pays for itself soon after purchase!
More than flattening… A True "Universal" Tool
With its proprietary true edge-retention technology and superior U.S. steel blends the ReedGeek rivals even the most expensive reed knives sold today, with no sharpening required and no dangerous knife blade to slice delicate fingertips. On this miracle bar all edges are created equal and can be used by both single and double reed players as one would use traditional knives to adjust and balance reeds.
The tip of the tool features a gentle proprietary radius that can be used for precision scraping, including balancing the tip, adjusting the heart or other fine adjustments. The radius allows single-point contact for scraping very precise areas of the reed quickly. On each side of the scraper blade, there is a blade designed specifically to adjust or modify the rails of the reed. These blades quickly define the desired rail profile.
