"The Bassoon Reed 'My System' offers a completely new approach to reed adjustment which cannot be found in other books.
The basis for my system is that the bassoon and crook form a cone from the bell of the instrument down to the end of the crook, and a simple technique, which is explained in the following pages, shows the reed to be an extension of that cone. The reed then responds instantly to the flow of breath as if pronouncing an unvoiced 'Hah', rather like playing a recorder or blowing a simple whistle, and at the same time enables a full sound, and a wide range of dynamics.
'My System' has worked well for me over many years as a professional player, and also for my many students around the world.
The diagrams and instructions in my book will open the door to a means of great artistic fulfilment."
- Mordechai Rechtman

Very much about scraping to achieve a very soft yet playable Reed. Did go through process with a couple of ‘rubbish’ reeds and they are now okay for practice so there might be something in it. Will need to do a few more for more definitive answer.
