Best Advanced Level Oboe Reeds For Players Seeking A Warm, Expressive Tone With Extra Focus- Handmade!

Avignon Pre-Professional Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch and 100% hand scraped. They are dark, expressive reeds that feature a more focused tone than the Magic Reed alternative. They are customized to achieve these functional objectives through specialized materials, construction and scrape. 

Designed for advanced players (high school, conservatory, adult amateur). This is a more robust reed than First Chair Advanced and is differentiated from Magic Reed by a more moderate aperture and extra tonal focus. 

Construction/Scrape:

  • Cane: Medium to medium hard strength with thicker walls and higher densities to promote best results (Alliaud, Marion or Magic Reed). Staple: Professional Chiarugi staple 47mm 2+ to manage aperture size and achieve greater focus.  Shape: Mack++ or similar. Blank Length: 73 mm. Finished Reed Length: 69.75-70 mm.

  • Signature American long scrape.  Moderately defined tip. Heart .40-.42 in thickness.  Moderate windows, defined heart/back with catch. Moderate spine, modified at base of reed to reduce internal dimensions and bring up pitch. Intermediate level response. Every reed gets dozens of micro adjustments and quality tests prior to certification and shipment. 

  • 100% hand scrape and hybrid scrape (extra tip definition) options. The hybrid scrape option was added to Avignon to give players an opportunity for its advantages with premium cane.

Finishing Touches:

  • Tested in two rooms replicating the embouchure of the player I expect to purchase it, not necessarily my own.  
  • Reed prep instructions are included.
  • Light application of Vaseline to moisturize cork. 
  • Covid sanitized. 
  • Reeds are guaranteed against cracks and leaks or other defects with a refund or replace remedy.  They are otherwise not returnable.
