Handmade Student Oboe Reeds

Summary:

  • Magic Reed Student Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch and hand finished to the highest standards.  They are free-blowing, with the most supple response within the Magic Reed brand. 
  • Made with Signature American long scrape.
  • Every reed receives dozens of micro adjustments and quality tests prior to shipment.
  • My job is to create a reed structure that compensates for those production skills that have yet to develop so early learners sound better fasted.  After all, sounding good is highly motivational for beginners, and we want them to stick around to become intermediates and then advanced players. My student reeds have more professional quality attributes than the rest, and are just what parent want for their future superstar.
  • Reed maker discretion is used to choose cane and staples for this product.  It is always professional quality.
  • Consult Magic Reed Collection Page For Full Construction Details

Experience Level:

  • They are designed for optimum response for players with 6-18 months experience who want to sound their best while learning their ABC's of music.
  • My goal is to manage response and tone without sacrificing pitch.  Student oboe reed making is a challenge because highly responsive reeds result in a drop in pitch. We recommend this reed for players with at least six months experience, and preferably hooked up with a teacher. 

Finishing Touches:

  • 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.
