The W-A6 model is based on the A3 and is available in G/D or F/C.  It is octagonal (8 sided) and has the Wakker 'block' reedpan, which is also used in the A5 and H1/H2 models.   This reedpan design  allows for optimal chamber dimensions, which results in a full, rich sound.  The lowest reed of the long scaling used in this instrument is 46mm/ 1.81 inch long.  None of the reeds have weights added to the tip of the reed.
