Our Handmade Student Oboe Reeds Help You Get Where You Want To Go. You will get there faster, and have more fun along the way.
Magic Reed Handmade Student Oboe Reeds are designed for students and other developing or recreational oboists with at least 12 months experience. They are best in class, and have the response and nuance more typical of most intermediate reeds on the market.
We use the same great American structure that is used for our higher end reeds
We use our highest grade cane in a somewhat softer strength to make them more playable
We narrow the shape to keep the pitch up when we make them a little lighter.
Our goal is a difficult one to achieve- finish a reed so that is less less strenuous for students while building in enough longevity so they only need 3 reeds a month. Believe it or not, this is the most difficult reed for us to make while maintaining our quality standards.
They are always made in-house by Magic Reed's expert reed maker, and never outsourced.
