Magic Reed handmade oboe reeds have a national reputation for warmth, expression, balance, scale and dynamic range. They have been enjoyed by leading artists, educators and their students who report that "they don't just speak- they sing".
All five of our models feature an American long scrape with a signature robust heart, and are finished to professional standards. They are customized by grade to enable players to sound their best wherever they are within the spectrums of skills and styles. Student reeds are designed to correspond to embouchure maturity, with enough structure to convert advances in production skills to an exponentially better sound across grades. Our professional reeds offer players with fully developed, yet individualized production skills, the flexibility they need for a broader dynamic range and increased nuanced in tone and vibrato. Self-directed customizations are available in our Elite and Custom models.
