About the Reed Maker

NEWSFLASH!!!!
In order to have a dark and beautiful sound which projects, it's not necessary to play on a stiff/angry/hard/impossible/irritating/resentful broomstick. YES! it's finally possible to produce a dark, world-class sound with a very comfortable reed!

To give you peace of mind during these challenging COVID19 times, we'd like to inform you that each reed and and its case are STERILIZED and handled with surgical gloves until shipping, and manufactured in an isolated and STERILIZED studio. -MAKE THE MOST OF THESE COVID TIMES AND PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!!**

Professional-level reed, made in the American style, with blended scrape; V-shaped tip (somewhat horizontal, like in the picture), ample heart, thick and strong spine and side rails, and well defined windows which blend in the heart. Very comfortable, with a stable pitch, outstanding low and high registers, dark sound and great projection.

Projection is key:
Many "professional" English horn reeds out there produce a very small, muffled and anemic sound, making those famously heart-wrenching orchestral English horn solos inaudible and emotionless :(

Your health is very important to us, that's why we only use ORGANIC cane. Think of it as the "Wholefoods" of cane: The healthier we are, the better we'll feel, and the better we'll play. Stay away from cane with pesticides and artificial fertilizers (most cane out there). -Your health will thank you.

As an oboe player, you know how delicate new reeds are. Reeds are very sensitive to moisture, dry weather, change of temperature and altitude, and various other factors that might change your reeds’ characteristics over time and also during shipping. Therefore, be open to minor adjustments so the reeds perfectly adapt to your playing.
