The Reedual is a duplicator machine. It works very similarly to the way a key-making machine copies a new key from a model key.
The Reedual works for any size clarinet or saxophone reeds. You can use it to adjust commercial reeds or to make your own reeds from blanks.
The Reedual has been designed so that most anyone can learn to produce high-quality reeds with minimal effort. You will find that there is a rapid learning curve to get your “feel” for the machine.
The entire cutting operation utilizes a spinning wheel with 220-grit sandpaper powered by a 1/15th HP motor. There are NO knives or blades. It is as safe as any sanding device used in the home workshop.
Each machine is supplied with enough strips to cut hundreds of reeds. We can supply more or you can obtain the 220-grit sandpaper and cut your own strips. The neoprene drive belt will occasionally require replacement, but these are inexpensive.
