Bassoon and Contra Wire - 21, 22 gauge, and .6mm and .7mm
Bassoon Wire, 21, 22, and 24 gauge
For comparison, here is a chart showing the diameters of the wires.
|Brand and Size||Diameter (mm)|
|Zebra 22 gauge||.65|
The Rieger .6mm and the 22 gauge wires will both work well on bassoon reeds. The Rieger wire feels a little more malleable than the Zebra 22 gauge.
However, there has been confusion over what gauge the Rieger wire is because their packaging says that it is approximately the same as 24 gauge when, in reality, it is approximately the same as 22 gauge. That is because Rieger is comparing their wire to the British wire gauges which are a little different than American wire gauges.
