Reed Monkey Student Oboe Cane


Reed Monkey select oboe cane is one of the best (if not the best) student cane on the market.  It is selected from the same inventory as our pro grade so it will have the same essential character for great reed making results.  Our strict quality controls mean that you will always receive cane that is straight where it counts, never bowed, and with an ample touchdown against a flat service in the middle to ensure a good seal.  It is gouged a little thinner than our pro models to make the reed making process easier.  The cane is more than enough for most student reed makers, and the most discernible difference from our conservatory grade is the price. Once you get up and running and have reliable skills and results, it will be time to sample our conservatory grade and upgrade if you find you get better results.  It is available in 9.5-10, 10-10.5 and 10.5-11 diameters.   Students new to reed making appreciate our Practice Cane (Bargain Cane) which is offered in a 10-11 diameter range.  Novice reed makers make lots of mistakes. We understand, so we offer five extra slips of practice grade cane with every select order for an even better value!
