OVERVIEW

You' ll be amazed at the difference!

The Singin' Dog oboe reed company specializes in handmade reeds that outclass their machine-made competitors while still maintaining an attractive price. The soft and medium-soft strengths vibrate very easily and will work best for beginners and those that have recently switched to oboe. The medium and medium-hard strengths are best for advanced students and most adults. The hard reed is recommended for those who prefer a reed with more resistance or those that would like to scrape a little themselves. If you have been playing on a "factory reed" from your local music store, you will be amazed at the difference with the Singin' Dog oboe reeds.

This Singing Dog oboe reed was terrible

      Comments about Singin' Dog Oboe Reed:

      The medium soft Singing Dog oboe reed that I received was visibly defective. I gave it a chance, thinking that maybe it was just a funny looking reed. However, the pitch sounded a whole step flat. Moreover, the reed, which is clearly crooked, is too short to allow for any adjustments. I ordered an medium-soft Eastman reed at the same time, and it was delightful. I have attached a photograph of the two reeds; the Eastman reed is on the left, and the Singing Dog reed is on the left. Given how terribly expensive oboe reeds are, I am very disappointed that I only received one functional reed in this order.

            This reed may be easy to blow but the quality of sound reminds me of a plastic reed. I was very disappointed.

            Great Handmade Reed!!

            Comments about Singin' Dog Oboe Reed:

            I have been totally pleased with the Singin' Dog oboe and bassoon reeds! As a MS and HS band director who also does full orchestra, you cannot beat a man-made reed that your private teacher can further adjust just a bit to 'make it just right ' for your best players. And, if you don't have a private instructor and don't know how to adjust them yourself, they come so closely finished (compared to 'stock' reeds by other companies (the ones we all bought 10-25 years ago - - you will be wonderfully surprised! I know the owner of this company (haven't seen her in 15 years), but she takes great pride in what she makes. She told me she started this company because she was so tired of scraping and adjusting the typical 'store-bought' reed. So, she started making her own for more than just her 90 private students. The first Singin' Dog Med-Soft reeds I gave my beginners in January (was as soon as I could get them). my oboists in particular, were beaming with pride because they sounded GOOD!! Now, we all know nothing can replace your kids' own lesson teacher making and constantly adjusting your kids' reeds weekly!! But, for the 80% of us who don't have a private oboe instructor from Julliard (like this oboist) or Oberlin, Rice, Eastman, ASU, Indiana, Michigan, U North Texas, Sam Houston State, Curtis Institute, etc.... it is the next best thing. And I know enough about adjusting reeds to very carefully make the most obvious adjustments!! Your private teachers will be happy that 90% of the reed 'is done"; and they only tweak here and there.

            Tried this brand one other time and unfortunately, the reed has not changed. The sound is bright and very ducky. On the positive side, is in tune. Tried a MH, seemed more like a soft.

            Comments about Singin' Dog Oboe Reed:

            The Singin' Dog Reeds are the best reeds offered. As handmade reeds they give players, ranging from students to experienced adults, the chance to play on reeds that showcase the necessary parts of any good reed, including the heart, windows, tip, etc. In contrast to the in-bulk machine made reeds offered, the Singin' Dog reeds have consistently been successful. These reeds have a strength that showcases much longer playing life, as well as a vibrancy and response that allows for easy playing and warm tone,unlike many reeds which are hit-or-miss and often lack definition and play-ability. As someone who has been making my own reeds, I was quite surprised at the level of product these reeds were in. They rise above most of the average reeds sold here, and have survived many sudden needs for reeds before concerts and other performances in my experience. These reed demonstrate great craftmanship. They allow easy response in low register, while still giving my oboe the chance to sing fully in my high range. Originally used as a quick reed, I have suddenly been using the Singin' Dog reeds for various performances, rather than use the older reeds that I have had. These reeds have become dependable and vital parts of my playing, and I suggest them to any player who is looking for a great reed that illustrates response, definition, and several overall great qualities of an oboe reed.

            plays really good at first, but plays out midway through concert. Too bad. Could have been a great reed.
