Student Oboe Reeds

Handmade oboe reeds for students with 6-24 months experience (these are not beginner reeds).  These reeds have our lightest scrape along with our most slender shape,  giving them an easier response without compromising pitch. They are warm reeds with a longer life than most student reeds, making them an excellent value.  Please go to our "Closer Look 1" link to this page for reed images and audio demonstrations.  It is helpful for us to know more about you to make a reed that will give you the best possible experience.  Please e-mail us with your age,  experience level, and whether you are taking private lessons.

Conservatory Oboe Reeds

​Handmade oboe reeds for highly talented and well trained oboists in high school, college and beyond seeking a medium strength, value-priced professional reed.  It has an excellent balance of warmth, response, focus, pitch and stability.  Players with a well developed embouchure and wind speed will enjoy this somewhat more structured reed.   We use our best cane, and choose the right cane hardness based on seasonal requirements.  It is generally made on a Chiarugi #2 staple.  We may, at our discretion, exchange use a synthetic staple when an extraordinary result is achieved with that reed (equivalent to our pro reed in every other way).  These reeds have extra drying cycles which improve quality and reliability post-shipment.  Please refer to our "Closer Look 1 & 2"  links to this page for images, demonstrations, a video on how we make your reeds, detailed specifications, and reed reviews.  We offer customizations for Conservatory Oboe Reeds at no extra charge.  Please hover over our "Finished Reed" Page, and go to "Profile" to learn what information we need to give you a more personalized reed.  E-mail this information to us at the time you place your order.  We will work hard to satisfy these requests, and keep this information on file for future orders.
