Our English horn blanks are made with the same care & quality as our finished reeds. They are hand-shaped and tied with our in-house Walters-Moore or Dyaz-Symer shapes, and come scraped at the tip just enough to clip it open and ready to be scraped into a reed. If you would like your own teacher to finish your reeds for you or would like to get more practice scraping your own reeds, this is a great option!


Blank English Horn reeds are made with silver uncollared staples and can come with or without tubing and wire. Choosing a reed thread color & shape is free! Please indicate color choice when ordering, otherwise we will choose a random color for you.
