I am once again offering to help customers make custom oboe  reeds to their specifications. I have met many oboists  whom are not able to make their own reeds due to some situation which is often outside of their control whether that be physical inability, or lack of time and resources. I have heard “I would still play the oboe if I had a good reed source” many times and  have been able to give many of these individuals another chance to play the oboe by providing them with reeds.  One of my goals as an oboe reed maker is to provide as consistent a product as possible, but what is great for me, may not work so well for someone else. I hope to provide reeds that can be relied on to play a certain way no matter the cane, season, or other factors, this in itself can be a challenge, but I work very hard to keep raising the bar for myself.

One of my goals as an oboe reed maker is to provide as consistent a product as possible, but what is great for me, may not work so well for someone else. I hope to provide reeds that can be relied on to play a certain way no matter the cane, season, or other factors. This in itself can be a challenge, but I work very hard to keep raising the bar for myself. A greater challenge is working to make a reed that is different than my ideal, but as someone who enjoys a challenge I welcome customers to work with me.  I can make reeds to their specifications  if they are facing a wall with reeds. I have tried many different oboe reeds, I have spoken with many oboists, and I have made many reeds at this point that I have a decent, yet always improving, grasp of different qualities that

I have tried many different oboe reeds, I have spoken with many oboists, and I have made many reeds at this point.  I feel I  have a decent, yet always improving, grasp of different qualities that reeds possess  and how to make reeds to suite different needs and individuals. I am always looking to grow my own skills and understanding of reed making, and I find looking at what other people find to be the ideal expands my own concept of what a “great reed” is and how that plays into my own concept of “great oboe playing”.

I would love for every customer to have access to a professional reed maker that can make custom reeds to their exact specifications. This is not truly affordable or feasible for most people, but it would likely make oboe playing significantly more enjoyable for many people. I invite you to contact me about what you are looking for, and I will give you an honest answer about whether I think I can help you. Please take the questionnaire below to get started, or place an order and I will be in touch shortly.
