About Rigotti Cane
The Best Cane
Rigotti owes part of their reputation to their material. The canes of the Var and those of Cogolin are among the best in the world. Grown alongside rivers and streams, Rigotti Reeds represent a large area that is maintained all year round.Cutting
The cane is cut during a winter over four months from December to March. When the cane has reached maturity (after two years when it measures seven to eight meters tall with a diameter of 26cm to 32cm), it is cut and left in the open where it will be worked on. The work on the reeds is split into stages. Rigotti only keeps the 2 or 3 meters from the base (the rest is either burned or used as bamboo). They then cut (from the base to the top) the tubes and throw away the knots to obtain tubes suited to music. This is where the true work starts. Each tube is calibrated to a particular instrument.
