How this scheme works - zero stress
From the time you place your order, we will send out 2 of the 6 student oboe reeds to you every 2 months, for 6 months. The reeds will always arrive around the date that you placed your order. This leaves you stress-free in the knowledge that a new reed is on its way each month without you having to do anything!
If you order more than 6 reeds we can either send them out together or send them one at a time each month.
With this offer, you will receive free postage and reduced reed prices for reeds that really suit anybody learning the oboe. We know that learning the oboe isn't cheap but we are trying our best to bring the cost down!
About the student oboe reeds
If you are a beginner to grade 2 oboist, the Crook and Stable Student Oboe Reed is ideal for you. It has many features which allow you to progress your technique and musicality without being held back by problems that can be caused by using heavier reeds in the early stages of learning the oboe. They are also hand-made in the UK by a leading and professional oboe reed maker.
The medium-soft strength of our student oboe reed helps you to develop a free and open embouchure which later in your development will make creating a warm singing tone on the oboe much simpler. It will also allow you to play for longer sessions, as it does not wear out your embouchure as quickly.
Beginners often don't realize how fragile oboe reeds are and break them frequently but our good value student oboe reed has been designed with a thicker tip in order help prevent accidental damage! Our student oboe reed also features a wired (has a wire attached part way down the reed) which makes it easy for your or your teacher to adjust the reed, for example, to open up the tip of the reed more, etc.
What happens if I need an extra reed?
Occasionally you may need an extra reed due to it being accidentally broken or just so that you know you have more than one reed in your reed case. If you need any extra reeds we will still supply them to you at the reduced price of £9.99! You won't be able to order these extras at these great prices online so just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will sort everything out for you.
Customer ReviewsWrite a review
My first two reeds came promptly in February and I have been using one of them ever since. As a beginner I don’t have much experience but I have been unable to play with the second. I have resorted to buying a knife from Crook & Staple to adjust it in some way but have yet to be brave enough. I feel that student reeds should arrive in playable form.
My daughter found these reeds comfortable to use. It was rather nice to not have to worry about running out of reeds for a change.
Will definitely be ordering this pack again.
Excellent reeds, swift delivery
Having a regular supply of easy to play reeds has transformed my progress with the oboe.
Thats great to hear, many of our customers love the convenience of the 6 month and subscription deals, its one thing less to worry about!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Happy oboe-ing!
Eliza @ Crook & Staple
I was recommended somewhere else to buy my reeds, but wanted to check out prices and 'a feeling' for who we would go with in the long run. I think we found the people we like here at Crook and Staple... how lovely to have old-fashioned, good customer service - makes such a difference in this highly-automated world.... and I'm not even that old!
This is a really good deal for my son who is just starting his oboe playing career. He seems to go through them so quickly I feel reassured to know another one will be on its way in a matter of weeks. The first one came through in a couple of days. :wink:
Delivered quickly as promised
Dear Don, thank you for the review. How could we bring this product up to 5 stars in your eyes? - we are always keen to improve! Best wishes, Matthew
Great quality and service, thank you
I suspect it will be very useful system but not far enough into it for fuller evaluation.
Good reeds. Unfortunately I only twigged they were out of stock after paying! But they came through after a couple of weeks.
Dear Nick, Thanks for your review. We include all of the stock messages above the add to cart button on the product pages, in this case in blue writing to help it stand out, such as 'Special Order. Usually dispatched within 1 week.' so that you can check when we will send a product before you place your order. Best wishes, Matthew
