Elite Professional Oboe Reed- Three Reed Plan

Summary:

  • Magic Reed Elite Professional Oboe Reeds (Original) are handmade from scratch and hand finished to order.  They offer more options than our standard professional models for a more precise fit with player preferences.  They are designed for a more robust, meaty response
  • Magic Reed Elite Professional Oboe Reeds (Slimline) are handmade from scratch and hand finished to order. They are designed for a more free-blowing response, and offer more options than our standard model. 
  • There is nothing like them on the market. They are made through a nuanced process that supports the optimum function of the four pillars of the oboe reed: stability, pitch, tone and response.   All reeds are made with an American long scrape and exceed all quality standards in their category.
  • Plans- Three Reeds Per Month For Three Months Or 12 Months.
  • Experience Level:They are the best oboe reeds for professionals, adult amateurs and conservatory bound students enough embouchure and  windspeed to fully take advantage of each models capability.

Construction/Scrape:

  • Handmade from scratch, and we really mean it. I draw the best a choice of medium and medium hard strength cane from my inventory, which is precision processed for optimum results.  There are also extra cane diameter choices versus our standard model too- 10.5 and 10.5-11.  I always include many sorts and edits in this process. 
  • Medium range shape which is usually Mack-Pfeiffer.
  • Mounted on a professional Chiarugi # 2  or 2+  47 mm staple with a natural cork and brass core.  The #2 staple generally promotes a somewhat larger aperture and a more robust result. The 2+ staple generally promotes a smaller aperture and a more free blowing experience.  I use my judgment on which to use, how to pair them with diameters and assign reeds to model only when finished.
  • Tie length is 72 1/2-73 mm at my discretion.  The cane is offset from the median by a couple of degrees to create extra torque in the tie.
  • Multiple scrape and drying cycles, starting with 1) exposing the bark 2) installing a moderate hand profile in preparation for a finish 3) up to 2 hand finishing cycles if needed. This helps improve post ship reliability, and is always recommended when working with harder cane. 
  • Reeds are finished with a defined heart and tip.  The heart is  @.40 mm in thickness along the sides of the spine. The rest is up to what is required by the individual characteristics of the cane in pursuit of the four pillars described above.  Finished length target is 70mm. It is never longer, and sometimes 69.5 to address pitch issues.

Finishing Touches:

  • Each oboe reed is finished to concert standards.  Only reeds that meet or exceed these standards will be shipped.
  • No two reeds are ever exactly the same.  No two customers are either. While I do not accept returns for reeds that might not be an exact fit to your own personal playing style, you can use the comment section on our checkout page to offer suggestions that will help me to make better match in subsequent orders.
  • Tested in two rooms with and without carpet on a Loree 125 oboe. Reed prep instructions are included.  I need to like every reed I sell.  If I don't, it gets smashed and I reuse the staple. When I test these reeds, I try to replicate the embouchure of the player I expect to purchase it, not my own.
  • Light application of Vaseline to moisturize cork in the event that player does not have some handy.
  • Covid sanitized.  Players are still advised to sanitize reeds on arrival.
  • Reeds are guaranteed against cracks and leaks or other defects with a refund or replace remedy.
