This is an unfinished, partially-scraped English Horn reed/blank. It has been clipped to approximately 58-59mm and scraped to the point where it will peep & make some noise. You can see a skeleton of a finished reed (bark off, back/windows started to form, long tip). It won't play right out of the box and it definitely has room for more scraping, finishing, and clipping to your standards and preferences. It comes with removable tubing & a few inches of English horn brass wire for finishing.


Perfect for students who want their teachers to finish their reeds or to practice finishing reeds themselves, or for professionals and teachers who are too busy to make reeds. Pricing is $15.50  per unfinished reed. If you have any other requests, please contact us and we can try to accomodate!


At this time, we are only offering partially scraped English horn reeds on our popular Walters-Moore shape. Custom reed thread color choice comes for free! If you would like, please indicate color choice when ordering.
