ABOUT THE REEDS
Erickson Oboe Reeds are made with a Ross gouge and a Caleb -1 shape. After making thousands of reeds, Scott Erickson has learned to optimize the setup to create responsive reeds with rich sound and stable intonation.
MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE
Light pencil markings may be visible on some Erickson Reeds. This in no way affects the reed, and can be gently rubbed off with your finger. These markings are used to ensure the precise proportions of Erickson Reeds during construction.
PLAY-TESTED AND SANITIZED
Erickson Reeds may have a minty taste. To maintain high quality, each reed is gently play-tested and then soaked in antiseptic mouthwash to kill any germs prior to shipping.
