Oboe/BAI Reeds


Dear Geoffrey,

Whilst flicking through the CD sleeve for Albrecht Mayer's Song of the Reeds I noticed it mentioned his reeds were from BAI. Having never heard of them I googled it, with little success except on his website where I noticed you asked him the same question. I was just wondering if you'd had any luck in finding out more about them?

Best wishes,


Dear Matthew

These Bai reeds are sourced in China as far as I now.
I found a site that had sold them who proclaimed them to be out of stock. Maybe you found that as well.

I'll send AM an email and see if he responds this time. He is in South Korea at the moment - conducting!! - but might be back. Anyway I'll give it a go.

Best wishes
