  Reed (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The reeds of woodwind musical instruments are usually made of Arundo donax; tuned reeds are made of metal or plastic.
There are several types of reeds: double reeds used on the bassoon, oboe, bagpipes, tromboon, english horn, and some organs and single reeds used on the clarinet and saxophone.
For a single reed, a complex shape must be cut from a cane 'blank': flat on the underside; thin and flat at the tip; blended to match the natural curve of the outer surface of the cane at the 'heel' of the reed.

 AllRefer.com - reed instrument (Music: Theory, Forms, And Instruments) - Encyclopedia
reed instrument, in music, an instrument whose sound-producing agent is a thin strip of cane, wood, plastic, or metal that vibrates as air is passed over it.
Free reeds, such as those in the reed organ, accordion, concertina, and harmonica, do not overlap the air passage; they are generally of metal.
Beating reeds, such as those used in organ pipes and in the clarinet, strike the edges of the aperture while vibrating.

 Metroactive Music | Lou Reed
Reed has, of course, always had a high opinion of his own worth, and no wonder: his first band, the Velvet Underground, was practically predicated on pretentiousness and pomposity (as was Andy Warhol, the band's mentor).
Everywhere else, he seems utterly at odds with the music, desperately trying to be a great poet, a hard rocker and an avant-garde artiste all at once, and failing on every count except that of plain old musician.
Reed continually raps off lengthy, unedited and tuneless narratives framed by catchy choruses: "Let go of your emotions" is one of the more effective ones here--but it's all just babble.

 Jimmy Reed, MP3 Music Download at eMusic
And his music -- lazy, loping, and insistent and constantly built and reconstructed single after single on the same sturdy frame -- was a formula that proved to be enormously successful and influential, both with middle-aged fls and young white audiences for a good dozen years.
This is all the more amazing simply because Reed's music was nothing special on the surface; he possessed absolutely no technical expertise on either of his chosen instruments and his vocals certainly lacked the fierce declamatory intensity of a Howlin' Wolf or a Muddy Waters.
Reed moved up to Chicago in 1943, but was quickly drafted into the Navy where he served for two years.
