The Magic Reed offers the best quality Oboe Reeds.
All Intermediate Oboe Reeds are handmade from scratch and Hand Finished with care. When you buy direct from the reed maker, your reeds are made in real time, and this means they are fresh on arrival. This is a specialized reed to meet the specific needs of the intermediate oboe player. There is no outsourcing, and this helps ensure top quality results on a consistent basis. The Magic Reed 's goal is to reach greater harmony in the four pillars of the oboe reed- stability, pitch, tone and response. The Magic Reed strives for a warm and responsive reed that is accessible to intermediates. We select cane in a medium strength range with a size that will yield a reed with a moderate aperture to help develop a proper embouchure without biting. Customers report that they sound better, progress faster and have more fun playing my reeds. If you are ready to work hard to earn a first chair, these reeds are a great choice. The function of this reed has earned us the reputation as one of the Best Oboe Reeds For Intermediates.
Professional Oboe Reeds are best in class, and enjoyed by advance players to touring professionals for their most important performances. Every aspect of our process supports the optimum function of the four pillars of the oboe reed: stability, pitch, tone and response. Reeds are well structured and spirited- never wimpy. The Magic Reed will give you a reed with enough resistance to give you more freedom of expression. We draw from our best cane inventory to create a true professional oboe reed structure which is capable of beautiful musical shape and expression. These oboe reeds are beefier than most, making them longer lasting and more reliable for the duration of a concert. Oboe players appreciate the material and scrape that is offered with this model. We draw from our best cane by strength and diameter. We use our scraping skills to finish the reeds to concert standards on a Howarth XL oboe. These reeds receive an extra drying cycle, especially with somewhat harder cane, to improve post shipment reliability.
