Stradella English Horn ReedThe Stradella English horn reed is hand-crafted by Larry Allen who hs been making English horn reeds for over 40 years. He was a professional English horn performer in Connecticut for 20 years including 14 years with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra. The quality cane he uses gives the English horn performer a deep chocolate-like sound with a very relaxed ease of response in all registers and at all dynamic levels. The window-like design in the back of the reed creates the stability and focus every performer is looking for.

My son has played oboe for 2 years and recently began playing English Horn. He played on Stradella oboe reeds and is also using Stradella English Horn reeds. His transition from one instrument to the other was so easy! He sounds like he has been playing English Horn for years! We highly recommend both the oboe and English Horn Stradella reeds.
I have used these reeds personally from the time I started english horn all the way until I began making my own reeds for the instrument. These reeds are incredibly consistent, they produce a good tone and stay well in tune in the low and middle registers, and they provide a seamless transition between the oboe and english horn. When I play on these reeds, I find myself worrying much less about the reed itself, and as a result I can focus more on the music at hand. This kind of stability and dependability is hard to find in any reed, yet the Stradella english horn reeds offer it consistently.
Oboe performers who double as English horn performers need an English horn reed with an easy response, a centered "chocolate-like" sound, proper intonation in all registers, and a wide dynamic range in all octaves of the instrument.
The Stradella English Horn Reed is designed
to allow the oboist to move easily from their oboe performance to their English horn performance with confidence and predictability. The Stradella English Horn Reed provides the English horn performer with the consistency that will bring confidence to every rehearsal and every performance.
The Stradella English Horn Reed is designed for maximum flexibility with minimal adjustments to meet the appropriate level of resistance English horn performers enjoy in their solo, chamber, and large ensemble performances.
I found that the medium hardness english horn reeds by Stradella were always a little wild in sound, and were unsuitable for some solo repertoire (like the solo from the New World Symphony). I also found it to be too powerful for my school's oboe consort, and had to switch to an older reed until I could do some work in it. However, I love it for playing full-textured parts in the orchestra, where it has enough power to let me hear myself, and a quick enough response to suit my needs. It speaks easily enough that I do not find it a challenge to switch up from bassoon to English Horn or down from oboe,However, in the future I will be buying their hardest reeds in the hopes of gaining enough control to use these reeds in slower solo passages and in chamber music
I started playing the English Horn two years ago and ever since I started, I have been using Stradella reeds. I love these reeds, they are in tune, easy to play, dependable, and durable. I have a stradella reed that I have been playing on for many months now and it still plays well and in tune. The ease at which you are able to play on these reeds, but still keeping a great sound, has allowed me to work on embrasure and technique which has not only helped me on the English Horn but on the oboe as well. Besides the tone, for someone learning to work with reeds and make adjustments, I think these reeds are extremely easy to work. I would recommend these reeds to any one, based off of the great sucsess I have had with them.
