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.

My daughter played on these for years. However, the last two batches that we ordered have been very poor quality. We used to order them in batches of 5-6 every 4-6 months. We had a batch of 5 in Jan of 2016 she hated all of them. Our next order, we tried one, and then tried 4 of other brands. She disliked that one also. We are sad to write this review because for most of her past 7 years of playing oboe this had been our "go to" reed.

          This reed came with the tip cut on a slant. Even after I straighened it out, and scraped it, I am still unable to use it. I'll probably throw it away.

          waste of money, a gap of at least 1mm between reeds. Not usable.

          Of all the brands my daughter has tried of Oboe reeds, she likes this one best. They don't last very long, but longer than the other brands she's tried so far.

          Poor quality and aggressive owner.

          Comments about Stradella Oboe Reed:

          The reeds were poor quality! The worst reed we have ever purchased. When I ordered the reeds it was supposed to be a 5 day delivery but as soon as I ordered I received an email saying it would actually be 4 weeks. Then when we received them they were terrible. I reached out to the company. The owner was aggressive and rude. Told me I was stupid and didn't know anything. I warn you to stay away!!

          Shipping was fast and this oboe reed lasted longer than the ones we have bought at local music stores.

          Way too soft, not made well at all

          Comments about Stradella Oboe Reed:

          Ordered a couple of MED SOFT and a couple of MEDIUM for a 6th grader. They are way too soft. One MED SOFT lasted a few days and then literally started to disintegrate. The other lasted two days and then warped so much the sides opened way apart with the tip was nearly closed. The MEDIUM reeds were slightly, sightly, harder but still softer than a JONES MED SOFT and still too soft for the first year 6th grader. These are the worst reeds I have ever purchased.
