IF YOU FIND REEDS SOLD OUT, YOU CAN PURCHASE A PLACE ON THE WAITING LIST, OR COME BACK LATER.
While I’m not working with the Baltimore Symphony because we are LOCKED OUT, I’ve decided to sell some oboe reeds. Inspired (or uninspired) by a number of reeds I’ve seen students play this summer, I’d decided to put my own version on the market until I’m playing in an orchestra all the time again. If you don’t like what you buy, you can return them, paying shipping both ways, within 24 hours of receipt in original condition for a full refund. I’m not going to call them “professional reeds” like I see people do online, because most professionals I know make their own reeds. These reeds respond, play in tune, and have what I think is a good sound. If you give me a few details about yourself (instrument you’re playing, how long you’ve been playing, etc.), I can try to finish the reed for you specifically. If reeds are available here, they will ship the next business day.
Well - I have to say that all has gone perfectly well in terms of sending
and receiving the reeds - I received them here in Canada just 6 days from
the time you sent them. They were perfectly situated in their little box
and I have strictly followed your instructions in regard to releasing them
from their tape and then soaking them. I have been playing on them since
receiving them and I have to say........ I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Being a
veteran of many a commercial reed maker, I can honestly say that your reeds
are fabulous. I am a half decent oboist (and current mature oboe student)
but I am an absolute shlemiel when it comes to making reeds. I found your
reeds easy to play with a full balanced sound in all registers and very
flexible to produce good dynamic range (while maintaining good tuning!)
Thank You so much for offering to sell your wonderful reeds.
