Product Description

This is a special student oboe reed offer. We send out two of your 6 reeds every two months so you always have a reed ready to play. This 6 month offer saves you money as you get a reduced cost of reeds and postage!

How this scheme works - zero stress

From the time you place your order, we will send out 2 of the 6 student oboe reeds to you every 2 months, for 6 months. The reeds will always arrive around the date that you placed your order. This leaves you stress-free in the knowledge that a new reed is on its way each month without you having to do anything!

If you order more than 6 reeds we can either send them out together or send them one at a time each month.


With this offer, you will receive free postage and reduced reed prices for reeds that really suit anybody learning the oboe. We know that learning the oboe isn't cheap but we are trying our best to bring the cost down!

About the student oboe reeds

If you are a beginner to grade 2 oboist, the Crook and Stable Student Oboe Reed is ideal for you. It has many features which allow you to progress your technique and musicality without being held back by problems that can be caused by using heavier reeds in the early stages of learning the oboe. They are also hand-made in the UK by a leading and professional oboe reed maker.

The medium-soft strength of our student oboe reed helps you to develop a free and open embouchure which later in your development will make creating a warm singing tone on the oboe much simpler. It will also allow you to play for longer sessions, as it does not wear out your embouchure as quickly.

Beginners often don't realize how fragile oboe reeds are and break them frequently but our good value student oboe reed has been designed with a thicker tip in order help prevent accidental damage! Our student oboe reed also features a wired (has a wire attached part way down the reed) which makes it easy for your or your teacher to adjust the reed, for example, to open up the tip of the reed more, etc.

What happens if I need an extra reed?

Occasionally you may need an extra reed due to it being accidentally broken or just so that you know you have more than one reed in your reed case. If you need any extra reeds we will still supply them to you at a reduced price! You won't be able to order these extras at these great prices online so just send us an email to and we will sort everything out for you.

The reeds came on time and were packaged appropriately. They sound out well and I shall use this company again.

Changing reeds.....

Made very well...its just finding the right one for me. I have played for years. But my reed maker has retired.

Peter M.
Oboe Reeds

Nicely made reeds but needed scraping before being playable.
I ordered medium soft which I expected just needed blowing in.

A reed that is easy to play with

Johnny S.
Both that I ordered …. Easy to play

I could imagine this as the ideal reed for a beginning student …. Believe me … it is one of the very few ( if any ) that I’ve tried since COVID that is appropriate for a student …. Kudos C&S !!

Edmund Y.
Good reeds and prompt delivery

This is the first time we ordered from Crook and Staple. We received the reeds in 3-4 days, reeds in good condition and are easy to use. Very happy about the reeds and the delivery service.

Great Reeds, and a very friendly personal service.

J. C.

These play better than any other reeds I've tried, but extracting them from the oboe's socket is devilishly hard, even after filing down the cork a little and greasing it.

Oboe reed

Reed did not play well and construction below par.
