New handmade oboe reeds! The Magic Reed number two reed is designed to professional standards. In order to increase projection, these reeds use stronger cane with slightly more resistance then the number one reeds. This has proven to help immensely in both orchestral settings and wind ensembles. These reeds are handmade in New York and refined over three sittings to produce a very stable reed. They feature an American Scrape and are designed to be free-blowing and still stay right on pitch.

Absolutely wonderful reed! It shipped very fast and as soon as I took it out of the box I could tell it would be a great reed. The shaving is absolutely amazing! I soaked it and crowed it, put it in, and it played all the way to low B flat on the first try. High notes were great too. Gets a very nice warm and dark sound, especially on low notes. They just pop out! Pitch was good too. Great reed.

I bought two of these reeds to try them out. One reed is well made and sounds very nice. The other reed was made with only a thread of an opening between the reeds. It is also way too soft and wetting the reed made it worse, of course. The second reed arrived in this condition and was totally useless from the start. These are not cheap reeds and I expected some sort of quality control, especially since they are not returnable. The good reed is very good, indeed, but I paid twice the price of the reeds to get a single good one.

A well-made reed!

Comments about Magic Reed Professional Oboe Reed:

This reed actually has all the anatomy you would expect from a well-made reed. I purchased 2 and both played "right out of the box". They have a nice dark sound and are perfectly in tune. I am purchasing 6 more and hopefully they will also be this reliable.

    Great reed. First time user. Everything I need and more. It is a whole new experience to play a real handmade professional reed. Now I know what I have been missing.

    Terrific Oboe Reed

    Comments about Magic Reed Professional Oboe Reed:

    I have ordered Magic Reed #2 three times now. The reeds are consistently very good and are very playable. They play in tune, and have great tone and projection. They are much better than any other reeds I have purchased.

    Crows a B-Bb, very long unfinished tip

    By 

    from Red Bank, NJ

    Comments about Magic Reed Professional Oboe Reed:

    My two reeds didn't look like the refined reed in the picture. The tips were the longest I've seen and very undefined. The reeds were very flat and crowed in between a B and Bb. I had to adjust them quite a bit to make them minimally tolerable for practicing, and that's not really appropriate for a reed over twenty dollars. I would have to suggest avoiding this item. I think I remember trying these a year or two ago and they were much better back then.

    Comments about Magic Reed Professional Oboe Reed:

    The Magic Reed Pro has consistently exceeded my expectations. It is rich, warm and responsive. I have never found another reed on the market that is this good. It truly is a professional reed worthy of the professional player.

    Best Reed Ever!!!

    Comments about Magic Reed Professional Oboe Reed:

    I am a professional oboist with a teaching studio. One of my students brought in a Magic Reed. I couldn't believe that a reed like this could be found on the market. Usually, I make my own but these are really better. I have since started ordering for my own personal use, and the 10 reeds I have bought were as good or better than the original sample. I am playing on them for all of my pro gigs. Amazing!

    Comments about Magic Reed Professional Oboe Reed:

    After receiving a tip on soaking of the reeds in water that had been heated for about 10 seconds In the microwave, the reeds are significantly different. The reed tone improved and darkened closer to my preference. Tuning up and down scale is stable. Feels like a true Medium Hard.
