Available in a variety of 5 strengths from soft to hard, the Marlin Lesher Oboe Reed suits any player's needs. Whether performing in a symphony orchestra, preparing for an audition or competition, or simply practicing at home, the Marlin Lesher Oboe Reed helps oboists achieve an optimal tone and response. Treat your oboe—and your audience—to the Marlin Lesher Oboe Reed's handcrafted excellence.

The Marlin Lesher Oboe Reed begins with the highest-quality cane, imported from France and carefully selected. Skilled artisans then precisely cut and shape each reed, which is mounted on a durable brass staple lined in synthetic cork. Marlin Lesher has been manufacturing premium oboe reeds for over 60 years, using time-honored techniques paired with modern quality control standards. The result is an oboe reed worthy of the most discerning musicians.

Whether performing a delicate solo or leading the woodwind section in an orchestra, the Marlin Lesher Oboe Reed delivers. Available in strengths ranging from soft to hard, with medium options in between, oboists can find a reed perfectly suited to their needs. The medium-soft option provides a balanced, controllable tone for most players, while the medium reed offers more resistance for projecting sound. Harder reeds are ideal for advanced musicians seeking maximum control and projection. With Marlin Lesher's expert variety, oboists never have to settle for a one-size-fits-all reed.

To achieve optimal performance from the Marlin Lesher Oboe Reed, proper care and maintenance are essential. Oboists should avoid extreme heat or cold and keep reeds in a protective case. Reed rotation, in which multiple reeds are used over time, helps prevent overuse or damage to any single reed. For the dedicated oboist, the value of a premium reed and premium care cannot be overstated.
