The Bochum is a lighter-weight responsive oboe reed suitable for many players from the early stages up to accomplished musicians who prefer free-blowing oboe reeds. The thin gouge and a standard U-scrape combine to produce a reed with a well balanced scrape providing tonal clarity and increased resonance.
The shape is our narrow ND shape - a carefully designed curve giving good pitch stability yet with plenty of breadth in the upper blades to provide the feel of a wider oboe reed.
Overall these features combine to offer a lighter-weight responsive oboe reed with a clear fairly centred and focussed tone and good pitch stability.
Recanes - what are they?
Recanes are made by using your old reeds - we strip back the cane and binding to leave just the staple (cork and metal base) and be bind on a new piece of cane. They play like new reeds and last just as long. NOTE: when you order Recanes you will need to post the correct number of old reeds to us. Please make sure the corks are not broken or marked in ink. First place your order through this website, and then pack up your old reeds with a note mentioning your order number and name, and post them to: Regency Reeds, P.O.Box 1192, St.Albans AL1 9AH
All our reeds can be returned, after testing, within 1 month for exchange or refund (please note we cannot accept reeds which have been extensively used).
