Bjorklund Reedworks - Intermediate Student Reeds


Bjorklund Reedworks Student Oboe Reeds are great for beginner to intermediate levels of players looking for a responsive, stable, and in tune reed.  These reeds are well balanced and the tone is well focused. Even though these reeds are labeled student by the maker, they have a professional feel to them.

Bjorklund Reedworks - Student Oboe Reed

Written by Donna Bekowitz on Jan 30th 2020

I bought this reed because I need a reed that is easy to play. It is too stiff for a beginner and I cannot use it.

Better than a “student” reed

Written by Lynn Hansen on Sep 9th 2018

I occasionally order reeds from multiple suppliers in search of great reeds for students. After reading Ann Hodge’s comparison chart about the reeds she sells I ordered one reed from each of three of those reed makers; the Bjorklund student reed was one of those. I was really impressed with the stability, tone quality and easy response of that reed. It was much better than some “pro model” reeds I have tried.

good quality

Chicago Obe Reed

Written by Claire McCarthy on Feb 21st 2017

I have tried the medium and medium hard. Both are very well balanced and play easily. The medium hard is not too hard to blow and has a good amount of resistance. They consistently have a focused and stable tone throughout the range. I have not had to make any pitch adjustments. I like this reed very much. It carries in a large band and the dynamics are easily produced for a chamber orchestra.
