Professional Oboe Reeds
Reeds in Progress
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 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. New in 2021: English horn reeds!
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. Sorry, I do not ship reeds internationally.
pro reeds: silver staple with natural cork
econ reeds: brass staple with synthetic cork
English horn reed: silver staple with collar
Standard shipping time for finished reeds is three weeks.
For urgent reed needs, please select the expedited order option, and your reeds will ship within one week of placing your order. Please limit your rushed reed quantities to 8 reeds. After you place your order, I will send an invoice for your records.
As a precaution, all reeds are sanitized in isopropyl alcohol and rinsed in Listerine prior to shipping.
Please do not hesitate to Contact Me if you have any questions about purchasing oboe reeds.
