Starting to learn to make your own oboe reeds is a good idea from when you have learnt the fundamentals of oboe playing or if you have developed an interest in being able to make and adjust your oboe reeds. This oboe reed making kit provides you with all of the specialist oboe reed making tools and shows you how to make oboe reeds.

If you are considering attending music college or are currently at one it is vital that you learn to make your own oboe reeds. Making your own reeds using this oboe reed making kit allows you to fully develop without unnecessary obstacles created by not having a reed suited to yourself. Many top oboists say that part of your practice should be reed making and often they spend 6+ hours a week making reeds.

Everything you need at great value

This oboe reed making kit includes everything to make your own oboe reeds from scratch. The advantage of this kit is that it comes at a great value, much less than the recommended retail price (RRP)!

Make reeds suited to you

Shop bought reeds are good but will never allow you to perform at your best as everybody is different and has a different instrument.

This will increase the ease at which you can play your instrument and will help you to greatly develop your tone quality
