An oboe reed carefully made with the beginner or intermediate oboist in mind. It’s essentially a more petite version of our professional model oboe reed- constructed of the same high quality materials, but with the proportions scaled down slightly so as to remain centered and stable while being easier to play. Responsive and warm with a lighter level of resistance, this reed will be comfortable to play while embouchure muscles are developing and building endurance.
