£17.00Price

I sell European, U-shaped scrape professional oboe reeds made from superior quality Alliaud and Roseau Chantant cane. These reeds have a warm tone and are very reliable in response.

  • All professional oboe reeds I sell are made from high quality Alliaud/Roseau Chantant tube cane and are finished by hand.

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

    • 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
    • Scrape reed by hand

    The entire process from splitting the tube cane to the finished scraped reed lasts approximately two weeks. I test all finished reeds on my Josef 20th Anniversary oboe before dispatching the reeds.

    To hear how my reeds sound, kindly have a listen to any of my videos.
