Reeds Rigotti owes part of their reputation to their materials. The canes of the Var, and Cogolin regions of France are among the best in the world. Grown alongside rivers and streams, in an large area that is maintained all year round.
Rigotti Gold reeds are cut during a winter afternoon over four months from December to March. When the cane has reached maturity (after two years when it measures seven to eight meters with a diameter of 26cm to 32cm), it is cut left in the open where it will be worked on. The work on the reeds is split into stages: we use a 'plumes' to dispose of all the excess and 'feathers', we only keep the 2 or 3 meters from the base (the rest is either burned or used as bamboo). Then the tubes are cut (from the base to the top), and the knots are thrown to obtain batons suited to music.
