As an oboe player, I am constantly wetting my reed. There is no convenient way to do this without dropping the full reed into the cup, so I created this fully-printable reed holder/wetter.


I designed the basin in Solidworks.

Is there a way I could modify this design so it could be a bassoon reed soaker?

I haven't tried it, but if you stretched it in XY or just scaled it up you could probably print for bassoon reeds. The key is to make sure the hole is large enough for the cane to fit through but not too big that the entire reed will fall through.

Does this have to be abs? It would be cool to print the mythical single reed mouth piece also :D
