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.

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!!

Way too soft, not made well at all

By 

from Rochester, WA

Site Member

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.

Amazing Oboe Reed

By 

from Atlanta, Georgia

Site Member

Comments about Stradella Oboe Reed:

This reed is absolutely perfect! If you are looking for a quality reed for an oboe for the right price, then, look no further! Whether you are a beginner or a professional, Stradella reeds are the way to go! I would recommend this product to any customer since nothing is wrong with the product. It's easy and simple to use for your oboe. Simply get it wet with water (or saliva), give it a minute to dry off, test to make a sound, and then place on the upper joint of the instrument. I would buy this product again! It's well worth the money and time, so don't delay....buy it now!

Fantastic reeds.

By 

from Valparaiso

Site Member

Comments about Stradella Oboe Reed:

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.

Not for the beginner?

By 

from Greensboro, NC

Site Member

Comments about Stradella Oboe Reed:

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.
