MADE BY FORMER STUDENT OF ALEX KLEIN AND HUMBERT LUCARELLI AND LINCOLN CENTER ARTIST
Our pro oboe reeds are 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. They are very comfortable, with a stable pitch, outstanding low and high registers, dark sound and great projection.
Projection is key:
In this day and age, many "professional" oboe reeds out there have an ANEMIC sound, but are being advertised and sold as if they were Schwarzenegger sounding reeds. Of course, you may sound great in your practice room or bedroom, but, how about in the middle of a full orchestra? Our oboe reeds are dark-sounding, yet CUT THROUGH any orchestras or ensembles.
When finished, the length of the reeds goes from 69 to 69.5mm so they can produce a “C” crow at 4.40. "Lucarelli" shape, which is the combination of the "Mack-1" and "Bloom" shapes. What Lucarelli achieved with this avant-garde shape, is, in his own words: “CAPITALIZING MACK'S STABILITY AND BLOOM'S WARMTH.”
Our musicians' HEALTH and WELL-BEING are our #1 priority. Only ORGANIC cane used.
The healthier we are, the better we'll feel, and the better we'll play. Simple.
Please, stay away from any 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, this implies that you be open to minor adjustments so the reeds perfectly adjust to your personal playing characteristics.
AGAIN, PLEASE BE OPEN TO SOME MINOR ADJUSTING
