About our NMC Prodigy Oboe Reed:

We are proud to offer this new reed model! We consider this reed to be a great introductory option to handmade reeds. Great for oboists just getting into handmade reeds or for a more experienced oboist wanting a reliable reed with consistency. As a professional, I also like to use these in certain venues where a larger reed isn't necessary.

  • Ross gouged cane
  • Gilbert -1 shape
  • Chiarugi or Glotin staple
  • small tip opening
  • Various finishes available per request

From our resident reed-maker, Andrea Smith:

I have a great deal of pride in this handmade professional oboe reed option! They are meticulously wrapped at 72.5mm, are never overtied past the 47mm mark. Because I use a unique scoring technique on the bottom of the cane, they rarely have cane cracks above the thread. If you feel strongly about your cane or staple choice, just add a note to your order.

The NMC Prodigy Oboe Reed is a great option for students new to handmade reeds but can also work for professionals in smaller, non-orchestral venues. If you'd like to work on making your own reeds, we highly recommend our handmade reed blanks!
