"Dedicated To Your Pursuit Of A More Expressive
And Satisfying Musical Life"
Our handmade oboe reeds have a national reputation for tone quality, expression, balance, scale and longevity- and we have the reviews to prove it. Our reeds are unique in the industry. They don't just speak- they sing (and they sing a long time). This is only possible because we create a beefier reed than is typical for most professional reed makers. Magic Reeds are designed for professionals first, and then modified for other dedicated players with at least 1 year of experience. We offer student, intermediate, custom and professional oboe reeds with graduated resistance and nuance. We also offer head start reeds in blank and profiled form to give developing, or otherwise busy, oboists the best chance for reed making success.
Our Magic Reed Oboe Cane has been described as "the best in 20 years" by elite recording artists and conservatory educators. "It loves to be scraped". We seek out extraordinary oboe cane worthy of our long term needs, and good enough to be marketed under our own label. Our current inventory is from our coveted 2017 stock, and we will share as much as we can spare, with deference to our core reed making business. All gouge and shaped oboe cane is hand sorted and precision processed in-house. Tube cane is hand-sorted for quality, diameter, and strength to ensure optimal results.
Magic Reed carries a select group of used oboes we would be happy to play ourselves, or are of the quality we would want for our students. We believe in the value of carefully selected used oboes and choose to carry them over new instrument alternatives. We buy oboes, rather than have them consigned to us. In doing so, we can manage our inventory to achieve the best combination of age, quality, price and overall value for our customers. If you have an oboe to sell that is in good condition, please contact us directly to discuss.
Current Inventory: Laubin (1995), Loree (1982), Cabart (1999), Miraphone, and Fox Renard.
