Other chapters in this first, general section concern tools for reed-making (it is interesting to see how little they have changed in hundreds of years) and general instructions for constructing a double reed. This last material is then elaborated in the chapters on specific instrument families: shawms, curtals (dulcians), krummhorns, and other cylindrical- and conical-bore instruments.
Indeed, I found this to be the case among my own collection of historical double reed instruments - some of his designs worked straightaway, while others needed some modification of size.
Having measured the physical properties of reed material, Casadonte is now developing computer software to model the complex motion of vibrating single reeds (clarinet and saxophone) and double reeds (oboe and bassoon).
The plants grow wild in many ditches, she noted in the May 1991 Journal of the British Double Reed Society.
The Pas de Deux features the double reeds
. The Waltz is brisk with surprising hemiola elements.
produce all of the sounds of a mallard hen with minimal effort, and the single reeds are favored by hunters who choose a slightly higher-pitched sound.
The Power Buck and Doe Call is an inhale/exhale call with single and double reeds
that you can set for any combination of grunts and bleats.
Messiaen's Fetes des belles eaux, for six ondes martenot, was commissioned for an openair festival and premiered over loudspeakers bordering the Seine; the ondes ensemble gives the impression of a constantly shifting group of traditional instruments, mimicking clarinets, brass, strings, double reeds
, and organ.
Single reeds are favored by hunters who choose a slightly higher-pitched sound, whereas double reeds produce all of the sounds of a mallard hen with minimal effort.
If you are searching for a timber mallard or specklebelly goose call, single or double reed, acrylic or wood, competition or hunt ink--a new call is awaiting its first trip to your blind.
Basin also continues to produce the Ricer and Norcal speck calls, the smooth and crisp Big Shot short-reed style Canada goose, the super-realistic White Devil snow goose, the dead-on Aleutian/Cackler, and the incredible sounding Double Take double reed and Hot Shot hybrid single-reed duck calls.

In his introduction, which includes a quotation about endurance from Philip Farkas, he explains that this project was initially intended to be "an exploration into articulation for double reed instruments," but it grew into a much broader study of endurance and efficiency for woodwind and brass players.
Nearly every section features a select bibliography, and the extensive bibliographies at the end of the document are sorted into "Physiology and Kinesiology" and general texts, as well those lists of texts limited to double reed pedagogy.
Although some of the recommendations and examples are indeed specific to double reed players, the general facts of physiology and concepts described are entirely relevant and applicable to horn playing in so many cases.
