Best Oboe Reeds For Intermediate Players Seeking A Free-Blowing Experience

Summary:

  • First Chair Intermediate Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch and 100% hand scraped. They feature a slimline construction designed to help developing students play their best with somewhat less effort. They have a beautiful tone, a supple response and are well balanced for pitch and stability.
  • I draw from my Frejus Oboe Cane inventory with distinctive tonal attributes and an exceptional capacity for the specific results I seek for this brand.
  • Reeds are made with an American long scrape. Every reed receives dozens of micro adjustments and quality tests prior to assignment and shipment.
  • My goal is always to meet/exceed my strict quality standards for every reed I make- without compromise.
  • Consult the Collections Page for construction details.

Experience Level:

  • Designed for junior high, high school, and college/adult amateurs who prefer a reed that is less taxing. Typically players have more than 18 months experience, and are able to manage a reed with somewhat more resistance than the student model.

Finishing Touches:

  • No two reeds are ever exactly the same, and in multiple reed orders one will always be best.  
  • Tested in two rooms with and without carpet on a Loree 125 oboe.  When I test reeds, I try to replicate the embouchure of the player I expect to purchase it, not my own.  If it is not a fit, I start over.
  • 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.
