About the Reed Maker

d=( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)=b Your health is extremely important to us, that's why we always use 100% organic cane in the manufacturing of our reeds. To give you peace of mind during these challenging COVID19 times, we'd like to inform you that each reed and its case are STERILIZED and handled with surgical gloves until shipping, and manufactured in an isolated and STERILIZED studio.
-Make the most out of these Covid times and PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!!**

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

Projection is key:
In this day and age, many "professional" oboe reeds out there have a small and anemic sound, but are being advertised and sold as "Schwarzenegger" sounding reeds. Of course, you may sound great in your little practice room, but, how about in the middle of a full orchestra? Our oboe reeds are dark-sounding, yet Cut Through any orchestra or ensembles.

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.

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.”

( ͡° ل͜ ͡°)人( ͡° ل͜ ͡° ) Our musicians' Health and Well-Being is our #1 priority, 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.

¯\_( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)_/¯ Again, please be open to minor adjustments so the reeds perfectly adapt to your playing.
