Coming from Catalonia in northeastern Spain, Medir cane is steadily becoming a popular choice amongst reed makers in the double reed community. The Mediterranean weather with ample sunshine, warmth, rain and wind allows for excellent cane growing conditions. The exterior of Medir cane is smooth with a pale-yellow to yellowish color, with some brown mottle. The interior walls tend to be medium thickness and density. It is well-sort and quite straight. We have found the cane to be of medium to medium-hard strength, resulting in oboe reeds that vibrate easily with a warm sound.
