This is an unfinished, partially-scraped oboe reed/blank. It has been clipped to longer than 70mm 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.


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 starts at $10.25 per unfinished reed, and you can upgrade to a real cork staple for $1.45 more. If you have any other requests, please contact us and we can try to accomodate!


Custom reed thread color + shape choice come for free! If you would like, please indicate color & shape choice when ordering.
