The young Dutch firm WoodWindDesignis dedicated to solve woodwind related problems with unique, easy to use and beautifully designed and manufactured products. As a trained clarinettist, Gijs van Leeuwen knows the woodwind trade, the challenges and how to cope with it.
WoodWindDesign will -at its first appearance at Musikmesse Frankfurt- show following innovations:
carbon ultra light instrument stands for the low woodwinds, easy in transportation.
ultra beautiful wooden stands for the high woodwinds
handmade REAL REEDS for (bass) clarinet (and saxes?) of the highest quality
DEGRAV! Deny gravity to ease right-hand thumb/hand/wrist/arm problems
WoodWindDesign is constantly developing new products, please contact WoodWindDesign if you encounter a problem that could lead to yet another innovation, even if it is not strictly woodwind related.....
The WoodWindDesign product groups are:
I. ultra light carbon standsfor bassoon, bass clarinet, baritone saxophoneand contrabass flute
Imagine: no 2.5 kg heavy metal stand and an extra bag in public transport travelling to your gigs, no extra check-ins at the airport!
The stands consist of four or five telescoping, carbon reinforced tubes, one tube holder and rubber padded instrument supports designed to really fit the instrument. These extremely stable stands can be disassembled completely, which make them transportable inside the instrument case.
II. ultra light, ultra gorgeous wooden stands for flute, oboe and clarinet.
Beware: gazing at beauties is like gazing at a fireplace, it may distract you when practicing.
These stands consist of a wooden tube, carefully hand turned, polished and oiled, using the most precious and beautiful timbers you can imagine. The carbon legs are stored in the stand, making in instrument transportation possible .
III. Deny Gravity with DEGRAV!The new standard to cope with right hand/thumb/wrist/arm problems.
Experience the joy and freedom of playing again without pain or muscle stress.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Dystonia, Rheumatism, pain in the thumb or “just” small (children’s) hands cause a constant distraction whilst making music. Release your thumb of the weight of the clarinet or oboe/English horn and play as if somebody carries the instrument for you. A small adapter placed at the exact centre of gravity of your instrument (mind you: no extra holes to be drilled in your valuable instrument!) attaches to a carbon pole that carries the instrument’s weight to the floor. You can move freely to the left and right, forward and backward as you are used to do.
IV. REAL REEDS for (bass) clarinet.
Enjoy making music instead of fighting the reed. Nurture your imagination with new possibilities.
Hand built reeds, made with love and understanding for the material as well as the instrument, and with lots of patience. Perfectly flat smooth bottom to match your perfect symmetrical mouthpiece, perfectly balanced facing to enable the mouthpiece and instrument to sound as they were meant to. Because the reeds are very well polished, the moist does not get into the cane as fast as you are used to, which enhances the reed’s life time considerably.
