Reeds and Staples

We are happy to supply additional finished reeds and/or staples for any of the instruments that we make. One finished reed and one extra staple are included with every oboe purchase.

Staples are normally the single piece type and are made of brass with soldered seams. Two-piece staples and staples for instruments made by other makers can be made to order by special request. Taille or oboe da caccia reeds can be ordered as either bassoon type or oboe type. Please specify your preference.
