The Viscount oboe reed is a medium-weight reed suitable for many players from the early stages up to highly accomplished musicians. The medium gouge and a standard U-scrape produces an oboe reed with a good balanced scrape combining warmth and responsiveness. The shape is narrow creating a good balance of pitch stability with slightly enhanced upper register and projection.
Overall these features combine to offer a medium-weight oboe reed with a warm and slightly centred or focused tone.
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).
