Powerful Intermediate Oboe Reed Using Vic Cane And Specialized Staple- Handmade From Scratch. Ships 10 Days Or Less-Guaranteed!

Moon River Intermediate Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch. Made with Vic Oboe Cane in a medium hard strength and paired with a specialized professional Chiarugi oboe staple. Designed for advanced players (high school, conservatory and adult amateurs) with the embouchure and production system to handle a little extra resistance.

 Construction/Scrape:

  • Cane: Options in the regular density/10.5-11 diameter range.  Kunibert gouge @.60/.45. 10.5 diameter cane. Staple: Professional Chiarugi staple 47mm #2+ at reed maker discretion.  Shape: Lucarelli or similar. Blank Tie Length: 72-72.5 mm. Finished Reed Length: @ 69.5-70 mm.

  • Signature American long scrape.  Medium strength. 70-100% hand scraped based on what is called for based on cane and other conditions to play best. Moderate + tip definition. Heart .40-.42 in thickness.  Moderate windows, defined heart/back with catch. Moderate spine, modified at base of reed to reduce internal dimensions and bring up pitch. Professional level response. Every reed gets dozens of micro adjustments and quality tests prior to certification and shipment.  Available with a hybrid scrape that produced beautiful reeds with extra dimension and tonal consistency.

Finishing Touches:

  • Tested in two rooms replicating the embouchure of the player I expect to purchase it, not necessarily my own.  
  • Reed prep instructions are included.
  • Light application of Vaseline to moisturize cork. 
  • Covid sanitized. 
  • Reeds are guaranteed against cracks and leaks or other defects that cause them to play under grade with a refund or replace remedy.  They are otherwise not returnable.


Moon River is a metaphor of yearning for the unpredictable eddies of an adventurous life, to be swept along by the currents to somewhere new: “Wherever you're going, I'm going your way.”
