Bochum Oboe Reed

Free-blowing, light clear focused tone, excellent response, very stable
Bochum Oboe Reed

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.
