Magic Reed has served the oboe community with high quality handmade oboe reeds since 2007. We offer student, intermediate, and professional oboe reed options that are made from scratch, and to order. Our goal is to promote extraordinary performances at every level of proficiency. We also have English horn, and oboe d'amore reeds of equal merit.
We sell oboe cane, and draw it from the same beautiful cane inventory we worked so hard to establish for our reed business. We treasure our inventory for its breadth of sizes and strengths, and our ability to match it to desired outcomes and seasonal requirements here in NY. We offer it in tube, gouged and shaped forms.
Our customer base is very loyal, and appreciates our efforts to ensure their best experience with every order.
Welcome To Magic Reed!
Magic Reed specializes in high end oboe reeds for professional, near professionals and conservatory bound students. They are typically darker and more robust than the competition. Our student line is geared to the player with at least a year of experience, and they are made with their developing embouchures in mind. Customers tell us that "they don't just speak- they sing" and that they "receive their best performance reviews with our reeds." Current Turnaround 3-5 Days
Magic Reed is an oboe cane sourcing specialist. We seek, sample, test, and invest in the best cane in the world. Our primary goal is to make great reeds, more of the time, for our oboe reed customers and ourselves. When possible, we purchase in enough surplus to share with the community. Our private customers include elite artists who trust our judgment, covet our cane, and make significant purchases of tube cane in their size and strength. We offer the general oboe community the same cane in tube, gouged and shaped bundles.
Our English horn and oboe d'amore reeds and blanks are made to performance standards and reflect the same quality and attention to detail as found in our oboe line. They are designed for a bold, beautiful tone that includes plenty of nuance. Our oboe d'amore reeds are available in blank and profiled forms. We also offer beautiful tube cane in a medium strength in diameters you would expect.
