The Blue Reeds
These reeds are of a professional level, made from specially selected, highest quality cane. The cane selected has a mature and free sound which is always important for the solo performer.
The reeds are profiled and then hand-finished to achieve a flexible but mature and rich, 'chocolatey' tone and a solid intonation in the upper register. Perfect for all oboists who prefer a reed with a firmer resistance. Select from 2 different strengths depending on personal preference: either Blue Reed 1 (firm resistance) or Blue Reed 2 ( Very Firm Resistance). The strength of the Blue Reed 2 and is recommended for players with a very strong embouchure.
All reeds are wired. The standard length of this reed is 72mm length (this can be adjusted upon request).
If you have a specific requirement - e.g. you would like a thin tip - please inform me when you are placing your order. Please Note: The length of the scrape cannot be substantially altered.
Most orders should be sent within 2 weeks of placing the order. If it will take longer than this, you will be contacted.
