Handcrafted in the UK by Winfield, this professional oboe reed delivers an exceptional playing experience in all environments. As with all Winfield reeds, a brass wire and strong thread binding are employed to ensure durability. However, what sets this model apart from other reeds is its unique brass staple.
The revolutionary Winfield brass staple is precision-tooled using computer-controlled technology to guarantee consistency and quality. Made from high-quality brass, this new staple employs two long-lasting, user replaceable rubber bands to minimise the contact with the Oboe; this allows the staple to vibrate freely, without the dampening effect that is typical of traditional cork staples.
As a result of this revolutionary design, you will enjoy unbridled, vibrant projection along with noticeably improved tone and resonance. The all-metal construction of the staple means that this reed is likely to last longer and the brass staple will probably outlast both you and your instrument, making it a sound investment.
Measuring in at 71mm overall length, 47mm staple length and 8mm tip width, the 'u' scrape Winfield professional oboe reed with brass staple has a medium strength, providing you with a consistent playing experience across all notes.
This reed fits most oboes, however please note that the hole at the top of your oboe needs to be larger than 7mm to fit the reed in.
Whether you are a student, hobbyist or professional, this reed will allow you to achieve sounds that can exceed your expectations.
The reed's thread colour may vary and the reed, on occasion, may not have the staple wrapped in a Winfield gold sticker.
