Moon River Pre-Professional Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch and 100% hand scraped to sound best. Made with Vic oboe cane in a medium hard to hard strengths and regular density.  This cane is gorgeous featuring a hard shell and a buttery interior. Reeds are made choice of medium hard 10-10 or 10.5-11 cane for regular to somewhat larger aperture aperture sizes. players in somewhat higher/drier locations are encouraged to select the 10-10.5 option to offset expected aperture size shrinkage. Designed for advanced players (high school, conservatory and adult amateurs) with well developed  production systems.

 

Construction/Scrape:

  • Cane: Vic Oboe Cane in medium hard strength/regular density oboe cane (or similar) that promotes best results in this cane category.  Kunibert gouge @.60/.45. 10.5 diameter cane. Staple: Professional Chiarugi staple 47mm #2 or 2+ at reed maker discretion.  Shape: Mack++ or similar. Blank Length: 73 mm. Finished Reed Length: 69.75-70 mm.

  • Signature American long scrape.  100% hand scraped and hybrid scrape options. Moderately defined tip. 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 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.”
