This gouging machine kit requires complete assembly. A step-by-step manual with detailed, full color pictures is included, allowing one to overcome the fear of adjusting the machine. Through this experience, the oboist can learn to control the one aspect of reed making that probably has the greatest influence, taking his or her reed making to a new, higher level.
NOTE: This product is not returnable once any step in the assembly has been started.
Although a bound, step-by-step assembly manual is included in the kit, a complete PDF copy may also be downloaded here. (9.85 MB)
