      Comments about Marlin Lesher Artist Series Oboe Reed:

      I am a professional freelancer and oboe teacher. I have been sampling various reeds to find a few brands I could recommend to students of arying ages who do not make reeds, as a backup for when I am not available to provide reeds for them. I bought 2 of the same reed, both Artist, Medium. The 2 reeds were very different. The first was easy blowing but produced a tinny, ducky tone. It was suitable only for the earliest beginner. The second was much more resistant, but was flat, difficult to articulate and produced a flabby, airy tone. I could have adjusted the second one slightly to make it more responsive and stable, but chose not to. The goal was to find backup reeds that an intermediate student could use without adjustment. In that regard, both failed. I would not recommend this brand.

        Comments about Marlin Lesher Artist Series Oboe Reed:

        This reed is amazing. It didn't take much time at all to break in. I actually used it for the first time during a concert band practice...and it played perfectly. It has a warmer sound and is easy to control. It is not loud or 'quacky'. I highly recommend this oboe reed. I have been testing out several different reed brands and this is the first one I've come across that I love right out of the case :)

        This plays so much better than many other brands I've tried, and the price is great! Artist is a great strength for intermediate players, and this brand helps produce a rich, full tone. These reeds even seems to last a little longer before they go bad or crack. I highly recommend them.

        The Marlin Lesher Artist oboe reed is excellent. With mine, I've been able to make the best sound I've ever made in my two years of oboe playing! My teacher had to work with it some to make it work better for me, but it was awesome, even when I first got it! I love these reeds!
