handcrafted oboe and English horn reeds
Unfortunately, I will not be taking reed orders this summer from May 1 through August 15. It's a big summer for me—I'm getting married at the end of May, I've received a grant from the Center for Cognitive and Brain Sciences at OSU for an exciting music research project, and I'll be presenting music research at three international conferences (Montreal, Canada; Cremona, Italy; Graz, Austria). With all the traveling and work involved, I decided that it is best to suspend reed orders until August. I apologize for any inconvenience!
I make oboe and English horn reeds for students and players of all levels. Though my reeds for beginners are lighter with less resistance, I firmly believe that all students, including beginners, should be playing on reliable, structured reeds that function in the same way as professional reeds.
Please use the form below to purchase reeds! Credit card information is processed through Stripe, a secure payment processing system. If you prefer to pay by check, please email me with your request.
When possible, I prefer to arrange meetings to sell reeds in person so that if necessary, I can make adjustments to optimize the reeds for the player's instrument and personal preferences. If you are a Columbus, OH resident and wish to set up a pickup meeting at no additional cost, select the shipping option "No shipping: in-person pickup" when you are ordering, and I will email you to set up a time.
For those ordering reeds from outside of Columbus, there is a $5.50 charge for shipping and handling.
