Quality Handmade Oboe Reeds​

The Magic Reed


The Magic Reed's mission is simple- to help oboists sound better and achieve a more satisfying musical life. Its never too early or too late to purchase great reeds.  Developing/producing the right tone on oboe requires a great reed.  Nothing less will do.

The Magic Reed is your On-Call and Personal Reed Maker.   The Magic Reed brand is nationally known for its excellence at each and every grade.  Meticulous attention to every aspect of the process and then extra finishing time versus what is customary in the commercial market means that you can count on a superior oboe reed.  "On-call" means we take the order in real time and ship within five days (often much less).  You will never have to wait and wonder when your order will arrive, or whether you will have it in time for an important event (rush orders accepted).  Using the Magic Reed as your "Personal Reed Maker" means you have someone on your side who is invested in your result and in making a reed the way you like it.  We have from two to nine easy enter custom options for your reed.  When you make your preferences known, I will have the right information  to make a reed just right for you now and over time as your skills develop.   I invite you to check out The Magic Reed page for some general information about my ideas about oboe playing and reeds.  If you want more specifics about my student, intermediate and professional reeds, you can find this information right on the order page.

I look forward to hearing from you.
