For middle school to high school ages (or intermediate players). Checked for response, intonation, ease in all registers, and tone. Student staple used, tubing attached for seal on bocal.
Handmade, play tested, and sanitized before shipping.
Alcohol can dry out the reed, so make sure the cane is fully submerged (up to the thread) in water for 1-3 minutes before playing. This is a good habit before playing on oboe reeds in general.
I clip the tip slightly shorter on one side of the reed (about 1mm or less) for better response and tone. Make sure the shorter blade is the one that rests on your lower lip. This might be hard to see, but I always make the shorter blade on the same side of the thread cross over. So always make sure the thread cross over is facing you before playing on my reeds!
