- Magic Reed Professional Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch and 100% hand scraped. They are beautiful reeds designed to achieve a robust, meaty response combined with a dark, rich tone. They are enjoyed by some of the country's most discerning players.
- Made exclusively with my coveted 2017 Var inventory. True a true medium to medium hard strength, higher densities, and thicker walls. Cane is precision processed in-house for best outcomes. I pair cane with a professional Chiarugi 47 mm #2 staple.
- Finished with signature American long scrape.
- Dozens of micro adjustments and quality tests prior to shipment.
Nuanced process that supports the optimum function of the four pillars of the oboe reed: stability, pitch, tone and response.

- Professionals, adult amateurs and conservatory bound students with somewhat stronger embouchure and greater windspeed to fully take advantage of the reed's capability.
- Finished to concert standards.
- 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. If it is not a fit, I start over.
