Magic Reed Oboe Reed blanks are a great head start for the proficient, but busy reed maker as well as the those who are learning. We often recommend starting a reed making curriculum with finishing or reed adjustment skills to ensure players have this necessary skill even when the full course of study is not completed.  We start with professional cane in medium-medium hard strengths and gouged to .60/.45,  quality natural cork staple, unless special ordered for upgrade, medium shape, tie length 72-73 mm based on cane characteristics for oboe.  They are not clipped for better aperture management.

Practice Blanks are drawn from an inventory of cane that has a thinner gouge than we prefer  (between 55 and 57 dry gouged).  Synthetic staple with opportunity for upgrade at reed maker discretion.  They are suitable for learning basic scraping skills, and are capable of good outcomes with fewer strokes. Supervision is suggested for early learners.
