Product Description by our Music Experts

Crook and Staple's student oboe reed is a great value medium soft oboe reed ideal for beginners. You will find it easy to play due to it's medium-soft strength & it has a longer life than most reeds due to it's thicker tip.

Key Features

  • Perfect for beginners to grade 2
  • Easy to play - medium soft strength
  • Last a long time
  • Adjustable to suit everybody
  • Great value!

Ideal for students - grade 0 - 2

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. The reeds are hand-made in the UK by a leading professional oboe reed maker.

Warm tone & easy to play

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 as other reeds.

Durable, adjustable & good value

Students often don't realize how fragile oboe reeds are and break them frequently; our great value student oboe reeds have 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. The reed cane is attached to a quality cork oboe staple by attractive thread (the staple is the metal tube at the bottom of the reed).

A Jolly Good Reed

Very happy with the reeds you sent.

Tetst result

For me the blue Student reed proved the best having just taken up playing this instrument after many years lapse

Great service!

Every time I’ve ordered oboe reeds they’ve arrived promptly and without any issues. Great service, great product!

A lockdown returnee

Not having played my oboe for over 40 years the lockdown led me back to it. My embouchure is gradually improving. I had a selection of old reeds, but I thought a new reed would assist in my playing. I found this reed playable but not so controllable as in terms of tune, and I put this down to the wire tie which I've never had before. Also I found it a very tight fitting.

My own fault

Came with the space in the Reed not open enough to make a sound - I accidently made the beginner mistake and broke the Reed when trying to open it. Will order another one as customer service was lovely and hopefully not break it this time!

Good quality and fast delivery

Lovely reeds, super service.

As a complete novice oboe player, I am probably not best placed to comment on the quality of the reeds. However, I reckon my tone has improved greatly and I am very much enjoying playing with them.
Where I am able to give an informed opinion is on the service. It seems to me that Crook and Staple combine the qualities of craftsmanship, “old-fashioned’ courtesy and consideration with the modern efficiency of website and swift delivery we have come to expect in 2020.
It has been a genuinely pleasurable experience purchasing these reeds. I will be using Crook and Staple again and thoroughly recommend this product.

Student oboe reed

Although I have been playing an oboe for some years it was not regularly but since the recent restrictions I have been playing more and practising every evening. These reads suited my needs very well. They are very responsive and have a nice clean tone. I would have no hesitation in reordering.
