Our english horn reeds are made with the highest level of professional quality scrape and cane selection. Like our professional oboe reeds, they have a healthy resistance for a wide range of dynamic and color expression. We focus on intonation, tone quality, response, articulation and stability in all registers.
The reeds are made with the option to include tubing to help keep the reed on the bocal of the instrument. They may or may not have wire, depending on if the reed needs one or not. If you have any other specific requests, please let us know in the notes and we will do our best to accomodate.
English horn reeds take a little bit longer to stabilize than oboe reeds so they are finished over 5-7 days* to insure stability. Like all of our reeds, they are 100% handmade, made-to-order, play-tested on a professional Loree english horn, and sanitized before shipping out.
English horn reeds start at $34 and choosing a custom thread color is an extra $1/reed.
* Orders with more than 3 reeds will take longer than 5-7 days, please be patient. Making a great, quality reed takes time. Thank you in advance for understanding.
