Zonda reeds are made in Argentina, to very exacting standards. The cane is grown without the use of pesticides or fertilizers. Full production is totally handmade, and has several advantages over mass production factories. Zonda Reeds are hand-selected and each reed is cut with the tip facing the growth direction of the plant.
Each Zonda box has a lot number with the harvest year, the plantation it comes from and the manufacturing and packaging date. A new measuring system was brought about because the existing ones were not exact enough. Zonda is available in 20 different sub-strengths. This assures the musician that all correspond to their strength. In this way many more reeds can be used.
Zonda does not hide anything. In contrast to other brands that hide the arc imperfections where the shape begins, they try to reach perfection by choosing canes that have a perfect curvature. In addition, the package is developed in a way that it is not necessary to open it to see the reeds.
Zonda reeds come packaged as five reeds per box.
