  By Skip Hoitt

 These reeds are traditional American scrape

 intended for advanced players, or serious oboe students with more than 2 years of studies. or an average of 3 to 4 hours a day of playing oboe.

These reeds are made by hand, using the same process and the same materials I use in my own reeds. With good quality hand picked tube cane from a mix of Cane growers and is medium to hard. The thickness is .60 (+ or - .02) at center of the gouge Gouged on a Innoledy Gouger , Shaped with RDG 1 with 10.5 diameter cane. I use a reeds n stuff Profiling machine with A31( Chicago ) template and hand finish adding windows and catch and thinning tip. all reeds I make are made with a wire and thread seal tape. The( string color may vary) tied on good quality synthetic cork 47 cm staples. finished length 69 to 70 cm tuning A=440 with stable Octaves I hand finish every reed the way I like My reeds to be. They have a nice full dark tone and play the full range from Low Bb to high F  with ease and great intonation A= 440 Â I think you will like them. Buy one, If you like it buy more.

Reed Making

I have been making reeds since My 2nd year of playing oboe ( about 1974 ) After being taught how to make reeds, My teacher said I was a natural she liked my reeds so much she started to trade reeds for oboe lessons. They have gotten better over the years. And now with the new reed making equipment my reeds have become even better and extremely consistent.  

 A little about me my name is Skip Hoitt I have been fixing and restoring oboes for over 20 years.

I am an oboe player .

I am a trained wood wind instrument technician.

I work on mostly Oboes and English horns. I have worked on almost every brand of oboe there is. From antique to brand new.

 I have a small shop in my house here in Phoenix AZ.
