This paper deals with the research and development of a prototype of a planar electromagnetic sensor for use in nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of saxophone reeds. Analytical modeling and experimental research have been employed, leading to very promising results that could serve as a starting point for development of a commercial-grade sensor. In addition to the reed testing, the sensor could have wide applications in NDE and testing of several other products such as meat, dairy products, etc.
