This highly accurate, German-made brushed aluminum table top unit is accurate to .001 mm. Slip your finished reed on to the flat horizontal tongue and easily check if you have similar thickness on both blades. This tool can be a great aid in producing a well-balanced reed.
The tongue is engraved with ruled markings to provide accurate measurements of each blade of your oboe, oboe d’Amore, or English horn reed.
Many folks use this tool to measure gouged and shaped cane for balanced thickness before assembling the reed.
A highly protective, densely structured, nylon covered carry case is available. It features a full zipper closure and has a side handle for easy carrying. The ripstop style covering is substantive and will hold up for many years. The high quality dense foam interior is custom cut to fit the Rieger dial micrometer.
The unit is fully adjustable and very stable once set. Overall size is 6 1/2″ x 4″ x 2″.
Made in Germany by Rieger.
