Fret not, the bass clarinet reed is there, labelled bass_clarinet_mark_1.stl. I hope this is the one you are after. Also, as i have mentioned previously, you may have to sand it down a little. Most of the models are based on the original no. 2 reeds (or as near to them as i could get), so if you would like me to alter the model for improvements, or even if you have a reed that i have not yet uploaded, take some measurements and send them to me.

Hi, can you please make a stl of the Bb clarinet reed? Currently there is only a stp file.
Thanks!

I used about 10 layer wall thickness just to keep the transition profile smoother. You should experiment with different densities to see if you can alter it to your liking.

Instructions

These are still to be tested, so if anyone gets a chance, post it in the comments. I've printed them successfully @0.08mm layers on my replicator, with PLA (ABS not yet attempted, though warping will likely occur). I also suggest increasing the number of shells to 10 or more, this will help hold the tip together, only 0.25mm thick.

Update 23/2: The MK1 with a bit of material removal is providing a very large range (A2-Eb6 I think) on the baritone. Will determine the ideal model and upload soon. I've also uploaded a short demonstration of the sound (more of a sharp edgy sound, just showing the range).

Update 6/4: I've uploaded a few new ones, along with an updated version of the Baritone. Included are the Soprano, Alto & Tenor reeds for saxophone, and normal and bass Clarinet reeds. As before, these haven't been tested properly yet, but i've increased the thickness to a standard 0.5mm so that you can sand them down a bit. Prints seem to work best with PLA, ABS will lift up too much and make a rough surface. PLA is also easier to sand down if needed. If you need higher resolution STL's, let me know.

Hi! I printed out the Alto Sax reed. It didn't work on my jazz mouthpiece but I will try it out on my classical. I'll also need to sand it down a little! Thanks!

What settings did you use? I plan to print one for my saxophone.
