Making reeds for your oboe needs!

The idea to start Reeds by Stephanie came from a strong desire to connect students, teachers and oboe enthusiasts with excellent quality oboe reeds. As an oboist and reed maker, I have been making and selling reeds to my private students for years. I decided to set up shop on Etsy so I could expand my reed business and help make more great quality, handmade reeds available so oboists that can't make their own reeds can still sound great!

Oboe Reed Care Information

Always soak the cane of your reed in water for 1-5 minutes before playing.
If the cork fits too tightly in your oboe, put some cork grease on the cork to help it fit into your oboe’s reed well. This is very important! If the reed fits too tightly, your hand could slip removing the reed and break it.
If your reed gets stuck in the oboe, use a cloth or the bottom of your shirt to grab the cork as you remove it. Remember to twist as you pull the reed out.
Store your reed in a case made for oboe reeds. This will allow your reed to dry properly, and prevent breakage. If you must keep your reed in the mailing tube, be sure to use a pin to poke a hole in the cap to allow your reed to dry. The tube is not crush proof, so keep your reed in the mailing tube AT YOUR OWN RISK.
