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

More resistant than the student reed, the professional oboe reed maintains ease of response with a more covered tone, ideal for chamber performance and performance with piano accompaniment.  Reeds are made to crow just below a C natural, 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.
