Basson Double Reeds
The bassoon reeds are formed by two shaped plates attached to one another and installed on a small tube (the crook). The player has to give the centre of oscillation for the plates by simultaneously holding them with his or her lips, which requires a higher tension from the mouth muscles, thus making the emission of sound harder.
