I sell handmade reeds that are built to each customer’s specifications.
Upon request, I will make reeds that are tuned sharper or flater for an instrument's (or player's) needs.
I offer choices of 63 colors of string including sparkled string.
I make: oboe reeds using a Gilbert -1 shaper tip,
english horn reeds using a Gilbert -1N tip,
d'amore reeds on a Chiarugi -1 tip,
bassoon reeds using a Rieger 2 shape.
