Summary:

  • 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. 

Construction/Scrape:

  • 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. 

  • Consult Magic Reed Collection Page For Full Construction Details

Experience Level:

  • Professionals, adult amateurs and conservatory bound students with somewhat stronger embouchure and greater windspeed to fully take advantage of the reed's capability.

Finishing Touches:

  • 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.
  • Reed prep instructions included.
  • Light application of Vaseline to moisturize cork.
  • Covid sanitized.
