Oboists and bassoonists know that handmade reeds provide the best results. A.Lakota Reeds was founded on the idea that handmade oboe reeds could be made to be of great quality while still being affordable to students, amateurs and professionals alike. We have expanded our catalog of products to include English horn Reeds, oboe d'amore reeds and bassoon reeds as well as a wide range of reed making products.

"Absolutely fantastic reeds! They were very well made and Aaron provided me with great service when trying to figure out which reeds would work best for me. The oboe reeds shipped quicker than expected too!"

"I refer all of my students to buy their reeds from Aaron. I rarely have to do any minor adjustments to his reeds in order for my students to be able to play on them. Each reed has a full, round sound that allows my students to play in tune and with well supported air while producing a good tone."

Magic Reed crafts performance quality handmade oboe reeds for aspiring to elite players. They are all made from scratch in my shop with no outsourcing. I offer 5 brands- each with their own personality/functionality to meet the needs of most players. Professional Reeds are made to my own concert standards. Student & Intermediate Reeds are just what I would have needed and wanted throughout my early development. Plus, since I never over-scrape, there is always enough room for minor adjustments if needed. There are plenty of other products here to enhance your playing and reed making experience. Seek and you shall find.

I'm looking for someplace to order pre-made oboe reeds online. I haven't played oboe in about two years (thanks, college), but I would like to pick it up again for the Christmas season. Unfortunately, my reeds are very old, I never learned how to make my own. I would like to find a place/website that sells quality, ready-made oboe reeds. Does anyone have suggestions?

NO! All of our oboe reeds are handmade (we never sell machine made reeds!)
