100% Handmade Oboe Reeds
While some reed suppliers indicate their oboe reeds are "handmade" or even "professionally finished", they fail to mention they start with a mass-produced, machine-profiled reed which is then merely touched up by hand. These kinds of oboe reeds tend to be inferior in quality despite being able to be finished and delivered faster. We take pride that our reeds are handmade from start to finish, from tube cane to performance status. Naturally it takes more time, but we think it's worth it. Many customers appreciate the difference in quality and allow extra time for delivery on their oboe reed orders.
Time for Quality
Handmade quality demands a significant time commitment on each oboe reed. We
urge you to order before you are down to your last reed. We will not sacrifice
quality in favor of volume or speed of order fulfillment. While the Internet
can get your order to us much quicker, please keep in mind that reedmaking
is a craft that demands patience and care in order to produce superior
results. Nevertheless, kindly feel free to email us for the status and
estimated shipping time of your order. Current turn-around time for
reed orders is approximately 3-4 weeks. Merchandise orders ship within
