1A Bassoon Shaper Tip by Georg Rieger
The Rieger 1A Bassoon Shaper Tip is used in combination with the Rieger Bassoon and Contrabassoon Shaper Handle. Made of hardened steel, the shaper tip has a protrusion end which is inserted into the shaper handle (which is then locked in tight by a flathead screw), and soaked cane that has been pre-gouged, gouged, and profiled is then folded over the tip, clamped to the completed shaper tool (tip plus handle), and shaped with a razor blade or similar blade to match the shape of the shaper tip. The 1A shaper tip is 15.5mm wide at the tip, and the narrowest width is approximately 9mm.
Please see the Rieger Bassoon and Contrabassoon Shaper Handle, sold separately.
Rieger Shaper Tips are not compatible with Pisoni Bassoon Shaper Handles.
