Happy Holidays! We Have Holiday Specials On Reeds, Cane & Oboes- All Perfect Gifts.
Our handmade oboe reeds have a national reputation for warmth, expression, balance, scale and longevity. They have been enjoyed by leading artists, educators and students who report that "they don't just speak- they sing". Magic Reeds are designed with a more robust heart than is typical in the industry, and this helps produce a more professional result with a greater range of expression and increased longevity. Offer a robust selection of student, intermediate, professional, and custom professional oboe reeds in graduated strength and nuance. Our objective it to help every player sound their great, have a reed just as they like it and need it, and have options to do so within personal budgets. Subscription services are available, and these orders come with automatic upgrades.
Our priority at Magic Reed is to carry extraordinary oboe cane capable of pleasing the most discriminating reed makers. Leading artists and educators have become loyal customers, because they trust our quality standards and the vital information we share about its properties.
We are not a full service cane company, and frankly, we don't want to be. We are laser focused on locating, pre-testing and purchasing best quality, no fuss cane, for our own core reed making business. When we can buy more than we need, or in sizes outside of our 10.5-11 preference, we sell it on this site. Priority is given to maintaining inventory for processed cane customers. Tube cane is then offered, when possible, and on a selective basis. Our cane is available in medium to hard strengths, and is highly sorted by diameter, strength, density, gouge, shape and overall quality.
Our oboe cane comes in two grades- Elite and Conservatory. Both are sold under our Magic Reed label because the scarcity and quality of these crops requires us to protect our sources. This is common practice for companies with our business model. Our inventories are finite, and we only add to it on an opportunistic basis when we find cane that is just as good or better in its category.
For those who would like to enjoy our cane without mounting their own blank, we offer blanks and profiled reeds.
Oboe educators serving larger oboe student populations have special needs. Its hard to ensure that all students have access the best oboe reeds available and quality cane to play great and achieve developmental objectives. It is even harder to keep them affordable. Most busy professionals appreciate a trusted partner in their effort. Our programs enable educator partners to earn, and pass along, discounts relative to the size of their orders and delivery option. Please call us directly to discuss your needs and our solutions, including pricing. Note: Student oboe reeds are not eligible for further discounts, but may, in certain situations, accrue points toward discounts on intermediate and professional reeds.
