Best Free-Blowing Professional Oboe Reeds 

Magic Reed Professional Oboe Reeds (Slimline) are the best oboe reeds for professionals, adult amateurs and conservatory bound students seeking a more free-blowing experience. While these reeds are the most responsive in my professional line-up, they are never whimpy or tissue thin. They are made with enough resistance to promote freedom of expression without over-taxing the player. That being said, buyers should expect to receive reeds that are more structured than most of the competition. My nuanced scrape is designed to optimize the four pillars of the oboe reed: stability, pitch, tone and response.  Slimline oboe reeds generally have smaller apertures than my robust reeds to keep them manageable, and have a little more wood taken out of the rails and the corners of the tip.

Best materials are used without compromise.  Cane drawn from a private inventory of medium to medium hard cane with a 10.5-11 diameter. It is precision processed, including a gouge that promotes a more manageable aperture size. I use a Mack-Pfeiffer or similar shaper form.  A final sort is conducted only after cane shaped/folded to re-examined for its potential before being mounted on a Chiarugi #2 47 mm staple.  The construct of the blank is first quality, and guaranteed against leaks. Expert scraping skills are employed to finish each oboe reed to concert standards.  Each reed is tested in two rooms on a Howarth XL or Loree 125 oboe. These reeds receive an extra drying cycle and adjustment, especially important when working with somewhat harder cane. This extra step improves post shipment reliability. Reed prep instructions are included. Please sanitize your reed upon arrival.
