  3. I’m an older student who’s been playing the oboe for 7 months and have tried numerous machine-made and hand-made reeds. These are the best. There was pretty much no breaking in time. The reed sounded great from the first note. I won’t buy another reed. Not sure when I should move up to the next level of reed, but for now, these make playing and practicing a joy. Thanks Danny!

  4. I have been trying to get back in to oboe playing after a 10 year hiatus. I bought some machine made reeds from my local music store, but I was struggling a lot. I was extremely sharp (3rd space C was almost a C#), top line F was very unstable, the lower register wouldn’t come out. I was left thinking that either I was the problem or my oboe needed repairs. To say I was discouraged is an understatement. I went to YouTube seeking guidance and found Danny Cruz’s page. Still discouraged after watching his videos and practicing with no results, I decided to buy a couple of reeds from him. Wow! The first note I played was low C. It sang out! My husband, who had been very politely putting up with my previous duck mating calls, couldn’t believe how much my tone improved instantly. To those of you considering buying from Danny, you won’t be let down. A word of warning though, he isn’t kidding when he says he makes these reeds with the beginner in mind. I can tell that I will need to step up to his professional reeds the next time I buy, but these reeds are incredibly free blowing and produce a beautiful tone. I only wish I knew more oboe players to whom I could recommend his products. Shipping was prompt and the package arrived safely with a hand written note from Danny.
