Reeds Cardinali

Luca Cardinali decides to channel his passion into the study and design of reeds, interpreting the different demands of many musicians met over the years and giving life to the new Cardinali reeds. Made for both classical and modern sounds and jazz.


Cardinali reeds are produced by Rigotti, one of the top manufacturers in this field. These reeds come from a particular bamboo cane, farmed in Southern France (specifically in the Var Region) and renown as the best raw material in the world. The absolutely unique micro-climate of this region, in fact, gives the plant and the finished reed its unparalleled timbre and flexibility. The Classic Line and the Jazz Line are different in structure and shape so as to give distinct timber responses, suitable for performers who enjoy a variety of musical genres.
