Ideal for students - grade 0 - 2

If you are a beginner to grade 2 oboist, the Crook and Stable Student Oboe Reed is ideal for you. It has many features which allow you to progress your technique and musicality without being held back by problems that can be caused by using heavier reeds in the early stages of learning the oboe. The reeds are hand-made in the UK by a leading professional oboe reed maker.

Warm tone & easy to play

The medium-soft strength of our student oboe reed helps you to develop a free and open embouchure which, later in your development, will make creating a warm singing tone on the oboe much simpler. It will also allow you to play for longer sessions, as it does not wear out your embouchure as quickly as other reeds.

Durable, adjustable & good value

Students often don't realize how fragile oboe reeds are and break them frequently; our great value student oboe reeds have been designed with a thicker tip in order help prevent accidental damage! Our student oboe reed also features a wired (has a wire attached part way down the reed) which makes it easy for your or your teacher to adjust the reed, for example, to open up the tip of the reed more, etc. The reed cane is attached to a quality cork oboe staple by attractive thread (the staple is the metal tube at the bottom of the reed).

First try of new student oboe reed

Well I thought I would try this out as I took up the oboe just eight months ago, and I’m looking around to find what reeds suit me best. Still got to break this one in, sounds a bit harsh at first, but hopefully it will improve as I spend more time with it. It is very responsive though. Not crowing a C yet, but will try again tomorrow. Of course I’m very careful to soak my reeds before playing, you absolutely have to do that!! What doesn’t help is that our dining room where I practice is very cold at the moment, so that doesn’t help the sound!! Anyway I will persevere, and I will come back here to share how everything goes. I love playing my oboe, and although I have loads still to learn, I’m so very glad that I took the plunge at the ripe old age of 58!!!!

Reeds were poor quality and I sent a message explaining that and never heard back.

In the past the reeds I got were good. The last most recent purchase of three reeds all resulted in poor quality reeds. Very disappointed. I sent an email to explain I was unhappy and never got a response so am surprised to receive a feedback email!

The reeds came on time and were packaged appropriately. They sound out well and I shall use this company again.

Nicely made reeds but needed scraping before being playable.
I ordered medium soft which I expected just needed blowing in.
