Premium Cane Construction Promotes Steady, Controlled Sound
At the heart of the 101 Oboe Reed is cane sourced from the finest regions of France. This high-quality cane is carefully selected and cut to precise specifications, then finished by skilled craftsmen using advanced reed machinery. The result is a reed with a balanced resistance and clear, centered tone that allows beginners to play steadily through a range of dynamics. The American long scrape further enhances stability for accurate pitch and minimizes the need for constant adjustment.
Multiple Strengths Suit Various Embouchures
Available in medium-soft, medium and medium-hard, the 101 Oboe Reed comes in several strengths to accommodate different embouchure types and stages of development. The medium-soft reed provides minimal resistance for beginners still developing breath control and embouchure muscles. As technique improves, oboists can progress to the medium and medium-hard reeds. With multiple strengths to choose from, the 101 Oboe Reed ensures beginners have the right reed for their current level.
Hand Testing Ensures Quality and Consistency
Each 101 Oboe Reed undergoes hand testing before leaving the factory to ensure the highest quality and consistency. Reeds that do not meet strict standards are discarded. This tight quality control results in reeds that play and respond uniformly, giving beginners predictable resistance and tone from reed to reed. Oboists can focus on fundamentals rather than adjusting to inconsistencies between reeds.
