Best In Category Handmade Oboe Reeds
Magic Reed crafts performance quality handmade oboe reeds for aspiring to elite players. They are all made from scratch in my shop with no outsourcing. I offer five brands- each with their own personality to meet the needs of most players. Every brand is paired with specific batches of cane that are uniquely capable of achieving the functional results I seek. My product descriptions offer full transparency in: cane (brand, diameter, size and strength); construction; and, scrape. My oboe cane inventory is fantastic, and has been instrumental in my success as a reed maker. I have been building it one large purchase at a time since 2017. My Oboe Cane Collection includes some of the same great cane I use myself. It is always precision processed for best results. Experienced to expert reed makers achieve terrific outcomes knowing they can make choices based on cane attributes without worrying about quality. Whether you choose to enjoy my reeds or make your own, you will find great products to promote your best playing experience.
Welcome To Magic Reed
By now, you have come to learn how important the quality of your oboe reed is to sounding your best and reaching your goals. It is likely that you wouldn't be working so hard to find a new oboe reed maker if your current set-up is working. I believe your oboe reed should be a friend, not a foe. It should meet you where you are and help you get where you want to go. My reeds are beefy rather than paper thin. This means that when you blow harder or differently, it will be reflected in the sound. My reeds are warm, expressive and responsive. While the holy grail of oboe reeds is elusive to even the most elite oboists, my results are consistently better than those from the commercial reed makers I have tested. I always ship at or above grade and never ask customers to wait weeks to get them. My loyalists range from aspiring students to some of the most elite performing artists. On balance, my customers learn faster, participate in more music making activities, and have a more joyful musical life. I invite you to explore all corners of my website and to place an order to experience the difference for yourself. I am here to offer any assistance you need along the way.
