Professional Oboe Reeds
Reeds in Progress
Please do not hesitate to Contact Me if you have any questions about purchasing oboe reeds.
I believe in creating reeds with function as a first priority: the reed must vibrate while maintaining stability, respond to light articulation, play in tune, and retain its opening. Each reed is handmade start-to-finish, constructed and adjusted over multiple days and personally play-tested to ensure not only the function but also the tone quality so that making a beautiful sound comes easily. My pro reeds have a big resonant sound. Econ reeds feature a slightly smaller opening, ideal for students.
Reeds range in price depending on quantity and materials (all reeds are made with the same care and precision!). The advertised price includes a charge to cover PayPal fees, shipping materials, and first-class postage. After you place an order, I will send an invoice for your recorders. Sorry, I do not ship reeds internationally.
