Oboe reed blanks are tied-on only, unscraped reeds.


These are suitable for intermediate and advanced oboists who prefer to scrape their own reeds from tied-on blanks rather than make them from scratch.This saves you a lot of time when making reeds.

  • All reed blanks I sell are made from high quality Alliaud/Roseau Chantant tube cane and are tied onto a 47mm brass and cork staple. 

    These are the steps I take over the process of making every single blank:

    • Split tube cane (Reeds n' Stuff cane splitter)
    • Pregouge cane (Reeds n' Stuff pregouger)
    • Gouge cane (Kunibert Michel gouging machine)
    • Shape cane (Reeds n' Stuff shaping machine)
    • Tie cane onto staple

    The entire process from splitting the tube cane to the finished tied-on reed blank lasts approximately one week.
