Stradella Oboe ReedLarry Allen has been hand-making oboe reeds for his students since 1967. The design being honed over 40 years, the result is an extremely consistent reed that plays beautifully time after time. Despite being designed for students, the quality on these reeds will meet the discriminating expectations of the most experienced players.

I bought two of these reeds, as an adult beginner. I also found them extremely hard to speak. When they do speak, of course, they are fortissimo only. A good reed should "speak easily at the softest possible dynamic while maintaining a true sound" (according to one oboe reed authority). Both of the reeds I received had unmated shoulders and were thick at the tips. Probably a knowledgeable person could fix these problems and make the reeds what they should have been, but I cannot highly recommend these, for the reasons given. For myself, I will be trying other options in the future.
I have been playing the oboe for six years, and have not found better reeds. They are always in tune and ready to be played, and they also come in great colors! I would recommend these reeds to players of all ages. If you want to sound like a pro, buy these reeds!
I have been playing the oboe for seven years and have always played on these reeds. They are great! These reeds never fail and are always easy to play and tune.
I have been using stradella reeds for six years now, and every reed I have played on has greatly enhanced my tone quality. Not ONLY are they more cost-efficient, but they are high quality as well!!!!! I recommend these reeds for anyone who playing the oboe. If these reeds don't work for you- well then maybe you should pick a different instrument because I doubt the reeds are the problem.
As a former oboe player, I understand how important a good reed is. My son is a second year oboe player and has had a WONDERFUL experience with these reeds! Love them!
In my first year of oboe playing I bought reeds from different places. My face would almost turn purple and my sound was awful. After buying these reeds my sound has improved ten fold I am realizing the oboe player I can be with a clearer sound. I absolutely love these reeds and would recommend them to any oboe player.
I have been playing oboe for four years now and Stradella reeds are the only reeds I play on. They produce a sweet, "chocolatey" tone like no other reed I have tried, and every single one is reliable. These reeds are a great choice for any player, from beginner to professional.
As an experienced oboe teacher, I have tried the new Stradella reeds with all my students- beginning through advanced and have found them to be very responsive and easy to articulate. Students like the ease of starting the sound and the consistent chocolate-like tone that resonates evenly in all registers.
The key for teachers in recommending this excellent new oboe reed to their students is to match the various reed strengths with the various embouchure strengths of their students-
MS, M, and MH.
These reeds are awesome! I have bought many different kinds of pre made reeds, and these are definitely the best. I plan on continuing to use and buy them. I would reccomend them to anyone who wants a great sound and an awesome reed!
First of all, this reed needs to be soaked for a long while before it will be wet enough to actually play. Then, the problem is that to even begin to produce a sound, you have to blow super hard. My friend who also plays oboe has a different brand of reed and whenever we play a song, my face is PURPLE and i start feeling a headache coming, but her face stays the same color. I would not recommend these reeds, and i will not be buying them again.
