- Best Professional Oboe Reed For Expert Players Seeking A Beautiful Tone With Extra Focus-Always Handmade!
Avignon Professional Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch and 100% hand scraped. They are dark, expressive reeds and feature the most focused tone in my product line. They have great projection and sound great in concert halls. They are made with a custom design that includes select materials, construction and scrape to achieve desired results for this model.
Designed for professionals, adult amateurs and conservatory bound students. Enjoyed most by those with well developed embouchures and greater windspeed to fully take advantage of the reed's capability.
- Black thread label.
- Made with Alliaud oboe cane in true medium to medium hard strength, with greater densities and wall thickness. Magic Reed Var backup at discretion of reed maker.
- 10.5-11 diameter cane (with option for 10.5). Precision processed for best results, including 60/45 gouge and Mack ++ shape.
- Signature American long scrape.
- Receives dozens of micro adjustments and quality tests prior to shipment.
- Made through a nuanced process that supports the optimum function of the four pillars of the oboe reed: stability, pitch, tone and response.
- Elite Professional Oboe Reeds receive an extra finishing cycle and quality sort vs. standard professional models.
- Options for larger aperture or 46 mm staples.
- Finished to concert standards. Only reeds that meet or exceed these standards will be shipped. Extra quality sort and drying cycle.
- Tested in two rooms with and without carpet on a Loree 125 oboe. When I test reeds, I try to replicate the embouchure of the player I expect to purchase it, not my own. If it is not a fit, I start over.
- Reed prep instructions are included.
- Light application of Vaseline to moisturize cork.
- Covid sanitized.
