Oboe Reed Blanks - Made by Catharsis Winds Oboist M. Isaac Ripple

Oboe Reed Blanks are tied, scraped, and clipped to 71.5 mm and crow just below a C natural.  They are made with hand-sorted cane gouged on a Graf gouging machine, shaped on a Mack Pfeiffer shaper tip, and tied on either a 46 mm + or 47 mm Chiarugi staple.  Blanks are designed for the purchaser to do the finishing scrape.
