For one reason or another, this cane has not been designated "premium," but is still great cane. People who are less picky about cane quality or beginning reed makers, rejoice. Here is some great cane at an exceptional price.
Gouged "Practice" Oboe Cane
This is the same Rigotti cane grown in the south of France and gouged at the plantation, but for one reason or another it hasn't been designated as "premium." It might not be perfectly straight, overly spotted, or have an irregular grain pattern. Still, it's good for those less picky about cane perfection or those just learning to shape cane or make reeds.
