2016 Quiz

You got it!

Reed-making could be an art because it allows for personal expression and leads to a player creating a unique sound.

We would argue that a reed needs to take into account the physics of sound in order to work well, so there is some science which informs designs. It also needs to take account of the individual player, and since every piece of cane is individually different, the reed-maker has to adjust each reed to accommodate this, and that part is what we call “craft”.
