Handmade Intermediate Oboe Reeds - Original Scrape

Summary:

  • Magic Reed Intermediate Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch with 100% hand scraping.  They feature a lighter response than the professional model to accommodate the developing embouchure.
  • They 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.
  • 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.
  • Every reed is finished with my signature American long scrape and 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.
  • Consult Magic Reed Collection Page For Full Construction Details

Experience Level:

  • These are the best oboe reeds for intermediate players with 18-36 months experience.  Their embouchures have developed to the point that they are able to manage a reed with more resistance and sound better than with a student model.  As premium intermediate oboe reeds, they are best suited to serious young musicians who are hooked up with a teacher and have already made a commitment to their music education.

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.
