Frustrated with Oboe Reeds?

From: Maryn Leister, Oboist and Founder of MKL Reeds
Cornville, AZ

Dear Oboe Player,

If you’ve ever been frustrated with oboe reeds, this letter is for you.

I still remember the nights back during my college days where I’d spend HOURS trying to crack the code to make my perfect reed.

I’d sit there, hunched over my reed desk, working under my reed lamp…

Sometimes, my “husband-to-be” would sit around on the floor of my dorm and watch me slowly go from a calm, cool and collected oboe player to just plain frustrated… all in the span of a few short hours.

If you’ve ever tried to make an oboe reed, I bet you know that feeling.

It’s part frustration, part anger, and part belief that if you just keep trying, SOMETHING will eventually work out.

Trust me, it’s NOT a good place to be 🙂

The good news is, you don’t HAVE to spend your nights like I did, wondering if you’d ever get through your reed funk in time to turn out a great reed for your upcoming concert.

Because There’s a Much Better Way…


Picking any one of the oboe reeds in your reed box with 100% confidence that it will get the job done.

You soak it, put it in your oboe, and can play any note from top to bottom with ease. Not to mention that your tone sounds smoother and more focused than ever before.

If this sounds like something you haven’t experienced in a while, or ever, you need to play our oboe reeds.

“Finest reeds I have ever played. It has been a while since I played a reed so well in tune. Thank you, Thank you!

Congratulations, you are now my new reed supplier.”

– Frank, Texas

It’s All About the Reed (Almost…)

Let’s face it. Oboists need great reeds. The reasons are simple:

  • A great reed builds the foundation for good oboe playing – it prevents certain bad habits which can come from trying to compensate for a bad reed.
  • With a great reed, you can just sit down and play – you can spend your time focusing on what you want: like making music.

You must have a great reed! So where do you get one…?

“I played a concert on one of the reeds the day they arrived. It is so comforting to know that I have some reeds in my box that I can count on when either my gouging machine or my reedmaking skills get wacky!”

– Sue, New York
