The woodwind family is filled with a wide range of instruments - flutes, piccolos, clarinets, oboes, bassoons, and saxophones – and they produce their sound through an exhaled air stream on a sharp edge. The woodwind family is extremely versatile, offering a range of sounds and tones to accompany any music genre. Heid Music prides itself on its selection of woodwind instruments from notable brands such as Yamaha, Selmer, Buffet Crampon, Leblanc, Trevor James, Muramatsu, Powell Sonare, and Jupiter.
A majority of woodwind instruments use a reed to help create their sound. There are single reed and double reed woodwind instruments. Single reed instruments include clarinets and saxophones, whereas double reed instruments include oboes and bassoons.
Heid Music offers woodwind instruments for a musician at any stage – beginner, intermediate, and professional. Beginner level options include the Jupiter 510ES Flute and Jupiter JAS710GN Eb Alto Saxophone. For an intermediate option for the advancing musician, try the Powell Sonare PS-505 PS55BEF Flute, Buffet Crampon E11 Intermediate Bb Clarinet and the Yamaha YOB-441A Oboe.
