Traditional reeds

Toika reeds are made in the traditional way using the best possible raw materials. Specially treated yarn is used as a binder to keep the dents in place. The height of the reed is 12 cm (4 5/8″). The reeds are packed in plastic covers and thus protected against dust and humidity during storage and transport. Please specify length and number, when ordering a reed and whether it should be stainless or not.

Reed number indicates the number of dents in 10 cm (Europe) or per inch (USA).
