Great Reeds Make Extraordinary
Magic Reed specializes in "best in class" handmade oboe reeds and cane. We have served the oboe community since 2007, helping to make extraordinary performances possible. Our new English horn, oboe d'amore and bassoon products provide customers with the benefits of expert reed making and cane procurement synergies that exist across the double reed category. Back to school specials are available now, and can be found throughout our shop page. Select used oboes are offered when we find an investment worthy buying opportunity and we have some excellent options available now.
We offer a full range of handmade professional and student oboe reeds. Customers report that "they don't just speak- they sing". They are warm, responsive and balanced to promote your best performance. We feature an America scrape with more beef than is customary in the industry for a truly professional or near professional experience depending on grade... and they typically last longer too.
We identify extraordinary cane, worthy of a long-term investment, through a complete pre-test protocol. We have made such investments in 2017 and 2018, and this cane has aged beautifully since then. This inventory management strategy provides our customers with consistently better product over time, and the ability to replicate their success in future orders. Our current inventory includes cane in medium to medium hard+ strengths-all capable of making great reeds, mostly under our Magic Reed Private Label.
Greetings bassoonists! We have launched this product line to take advantage of bassoon cane referrals through our network of oboists in major orchestras. We will grow the bassoon reed category over time, and are starting with a collaboration with a sensational bassoon reed maker.
Conservatory trained at Juilliard (Lois Wann) and Oberlin College (James Caldwell), with additional influences from Bert Lucarelli and Virginia Brewer. My goal is to provide you with reeds that promote your best performance, wherever you are in your musical life- student to recording artist.
