I cannot tell you how happy I was when I tried my first Jones reed ? and how even happier I was when it played that way the next day and the next! After trying a number of different reeds and struggling with inconsistent quality, I was thrilled to find these. They have a mellow but crisp tone and hold up to playing far longer than other reeds I have tried. Before Jones, my oboe sounded muffled, tentative, and squeaky, the notes were hard to hold and seemed to wander off pitch. After Jones, my oboe sounds strong, certain, and on target. I was a beginning oboe student and I was frankly turned off because of all the trouble with other reeds, but these reeds saved me; the oboe is a very tricky and challenging instrument. Why make it harder with reeds that do not perform well? The reeds are extremely well made, and not one has split, frayed, or collapsed. I am not at the point where I can make my own reeds. Until then, Jones is the first choice and is a blessing, knowing I will not be struggling with the reed and letting me concentrate on other aspects of my playing.

Jones is a "standard" brand of oboe reeds. The price is good, but the quality is variable. Of the 10 reeds I bought for my double reed techniques class, all were marked MS (medium soft), but they varied widely in playability. About half were comfortable for college beginners, but only after I scraped them to make them lighter. Of the other 5, 2 were well balanced but required considerable air pressure (way more than I, as a professional, would use). The other 3 were tough and "woozy," crowing only a low, flat pitch with no center. In other words, a loss. So the actual cost of the reed ends up being considerably more than the per-item price.

Through the years I have recommended Jones as a reasonable reed for beginners. However, their lightest strength, medium soft, I think would be way too heavy for most young players, especially if they do not have access to a teacher or player who can adjust these reeds to the student.

I would not purchase this product.

Comments about Jones Oboe Reed:

I was very excited to order this reed. I saw some great reviews on it and I decided to order one and try it myself. When I first got it, it looked fine. I started playing and this reed was a full step flat! I've never played on a flatter oboe reed. Had to throw it away. *I'm sure not all these reeds are the same, and I'm not stopping anyone from ordering these reeds.*

    Comments about Jones Oboe Reed:

    I have purchased many oboe reeds over the years, and I found this one to be one of the best sounding reeds yet. It plays well and fits my needs. I ordered two more.

        Comments about Jones Oboe Reed:

        This is the third time in a row I've ordered a reed from here and it hasn't worked. I mean it looks ok on first inspection but when you actually go to try and play, even after tweaking it, it will not play a sound. Waste of money.

            After years of using the Stradella reed, my daughter wanted to switch brands (due to declining quality of Stradella). We trialed 2 of the Jones reeds. She is an experienced high school player. After 3 days of use, these reeds shredded. We will not be ordering again.

                Comments about Jones Oboe Reed:

                A great student reed...helps bring out a good tone as a slight step up from just a beginning student reed. The only negative would be that some of the reeds split/chip easily (seemingly wear out faster than other brands)

                Love Jones Oboe Reeds. Great Value. Would not have my students buy any other reeds. I teach middle school band, and Jones reeds get a great sound for young players. Very affordable for them to start with.
