Tipo a Mano Reeds
The Curlew has been crafted using the best quality materials available, including premium Czech reeds. We use ‘Tipo a Mano’ (hand-finished) reeds, made from Swedish sound steel, producing a sweet and melodious tone and, like all good reeds they open out and get even better with play.
