Magic Reed Professional Oboe Reeds-Original Scrape

Summary:

  • Magic Reed Professional Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch and 100% hand scraped. 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.
  • I finish the reed with my signature American long scrape.
  • Every reed sold 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:

  • Best oboe reeds for professionals, adult amateurs and conservatory bound students .
  • Enjoyed most by those who prefer extra beef in their reeds and have a somewhat stronger embouchure and greater windspeed to fully take advantage of the reed's capability.

Finishing Touches:

  • Each oboe reed is finished to concert standards.  Only reeds that meet or exceed these standards will be shipped.
  • 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.
