Moon River Oboe Reeds

Moon River Oboe Reeds

Moon River Oboe Reeds-  Handmade. Vic MH Cane.  Medium+ Response. Expressive Reeds For Advanced To Expert Players.

Moon River Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch, with a custom construction and scrape for best results. They are designed for players seeking dark, expressive reeds with a powerful projection. I draw from my inventory of Vic Tube Cane (2019) in the 10.5-11 diameter range and process it in-house for best outcomes. It is a beautiful harder cane with regular density from the Frejus region of France. I match diameter to season, as necessary, selecting smaller diameters in the winter and somewhat larger diameters from the batch in the summer to manage aperture size.  Paired with a Chiarugi 47 mm # 2+ staple. Intermediate to Elite Professional models. Designed for players with at least 4-5 years experience and a well developed embouchure. Intermediate reeds are sorted for somewhat smaller apertures and strength closer to the medium+ range. Individual results vary.

Moon River is a metaphor of yearning for the unpredictable eddies of an adventurous life, to be swept along by the currents to somewhere new: “Wherever you're going, I'm going your way.”
