My order for bassoon tubes was misplaced by accident with clarinet tubes. There were 5 useable pieces for bassoon out of the pound of Vic tube cane received. Of those 5, 4 seem to have a good poppy vibration to them. I would be very interested in trying longer tubes with thinner walls (bassoon tubes instead of clarinet). I cannot accurately give any rating as this product was not intended for its ultimate use. The 3 stars is just to satiate the program requirements in order to post the review.
