Best Professional Oboe Reeds For Players Seeking A  Dark, Expressive Tone With Extra Focus-Always Handmade!

Avignon Professional Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch and 100% hand scraped. They are dark, expressive reeds with extra tonal complexity.  They feature a more focused tone than my Magic Reed brand. I match staple size; cane brand, size, gouge and shape; blank construction; and scrape to achieve these objectives. 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.  Offered in Pre-Professional, Professional and Elite grades- differentiated by extra quality sort.

  Construction/Scrape: 

  • Cane: Medium to medium hard strength/higher density oboe cane that promotes best results (Alliaud/Marion/Magic Reed). Staple: Professional Chiarugi staple 47mm 2+ to manage aperture size and achieve greater focus.  Shape: Mack++ or similar. Blank Length: 72.5-73 mm to manage aperture. 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. Professional level response. Every reed gets dozens of micro adjustments and quality tests prior to certification and shipment. 

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.
