Best Discount Student Oboe Reeds

Reed Monkey makes the best discount student oboe reeds for players with at least 4-6 months experience. They are the most streamlined and free-blowing of my oboe reed products, and head and shoulders over the rest in its category and price point. 

Student Oboe Reed Strength

I believe that beginner oboe reeds should do more than just speak. Paper thin beginner reeds (with openings that are non-existent out of the box) may give the student a first "toot" but will do little to help a "newbie" wrap their mouth around the reed properly and begin to develop a concept of sound. Also, many student reeds out there don't last more than a nano second so you have to buy them more often. Making a student reed that is longer lasting and helps players new to the instrument sound more like a real oboists as soon as possible a priority for me.

Reed Monkey Oboe Reeds are light enough for beginners to manage, with enough wood to help  progress to the next level without many of the bad habits that come with playing flimsy reeds. The oboe reed is the single most important factor in producing a good sound (assuming a properly functioning oboe), so it needs to function well. While everyone strives for a fully developed embouchure to make beautiful music, this is not required to fully enjoy these reeds and sound one's best as a beginner.  

Student Oboe Reed Design

Reed Monkey oboe reeds are free blowing, and are designed to play better than the rest with or without a functioning embouchure. I use somewhat softer cane, a high quality student staple, and couple this with some moderate long profiling in preparation for an expert hand finish. This process helps deliver a high quality reed at a more affordable price.  Purchasing quality beginner oboe reeds is the best way to keep budding musicians on course to build a foundation for a lifetime of music making.  

Reeds are tested on a Loree 125 or Howarth XL oboe, and certified at or above grade before shipping.  Reed preparation instructions included.  Please sanitize  reeds upon arrival.
