About This Elite Professional Oboe Reed

Summary:

  • Magic Reed Elite Professional Oboe Reeds are beautiful reeds designed to achieve a more robust, meaty response combined with a dark, rich tone.  They have a personality all their own, and there is nothing like them on the market.
  • They are handmade from scratch, 100% hand scraped and offered in two models.
  • I draw exclusively from my coveted 2017 Var inventory (quality cane gets better and better with time). It is true medium to medium hard in strength, higher density, thicker walled and has a buttery texture.
  • Reeds are finished with my signature American long scrape.
  • Every reed sold receives dozens of micro adjustments and quality tests prior to shipment.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.
  • Every reed receives dozens of micro adjustments and quality tests prior to shipment.
  • They feature extra finishing cycles and an extra quality sort making them an upgrade from the standard professional model. 
  • 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.
  • Consult Magic Reed Collection Page For Full Construction Description

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.+

Choices:

Original-

Beautiful, truly professional level full-bodied oboe reed designed for a more robust, meaty response with extra expression. These are highly defined reeds with visible distinctions between the parts. Medium to medium hard strength.  10.5-11 diameter range.  Chiarugi #2 47 mm staples.  Medium to medium plus size aperture. Players report a nice lifespan with these reeds.

Slimline-

This is the only Slimline option that uses Var 2017 cane.  It's design promotes a  more free-blowing experience in combination with a relatively smaller aperture size than is featured in our Original model that uses Var 2017 cane.  Reeds are highly playable without needing to be over-scraped.  My custom construction makes optimal expression possible.  I combine my best medium strength cane in a larger diameter with a Chiarugi 47 mm 2+ professional staple.  This modifies the aperture enough to finish the reed with a defined scrape like the Original model.

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.
