A good knife is essential for an oboist. It can be made of different materials (ceramic, steel …) but the most important thing is that it is well sharpened. You can also use a cutter that will always be sharp.
A reed case is essential to transport reeds to class or concerts. They can be made of wood or leather and there are from 3 reeds to boxes of 40 reeds (20 for each side).
An accessory for the instrument is also a good gift for an oboist. In this category you can find swabs, cleaning cloths, stands for the oboe or English horn, cork grease or even a new oboe case to carry the oboe more comfortably.
REED MAKING ACCESORIES.
Any accessory for reed making is an excellent gift for oboe players, like reed tip cutters, emission simulators or tools to make reeds such as thread, wire, staples, plaques, micrometers or a shaper… If you want, an excellent option as a gift for an oboe student is the starter kit with all the necessary materials to start making reeds.
SHEET MUSIC OR CD.
A good gift for oboists is also a CD or sheet music. Here we leave you with a selection:
FINISHED REEDS OR PROCESSED CANE TO MAKE REEDS.
If you prefer to give finished reeds, we will have to take into account the level of the oboist. For students these would be the reeds and material that you could give away:
FOR PROFESSIONALS OR ADVANCED STUDENTS:
For professionals, you would have to ask them the options they need, because you always have to adapt to their tastes. If you want a standard reed, you could buy professional reeds with a 47 staple and medium hardness.
In processed cane we recommend shaped oboe cane. For oboists the standard is: European Style 0.18, Shaper RC12, Cane Diameter 10-10.5, Thickness 57-58 and Medium Hardness.
If you want cheap musical gifts not only for oboists but for any musician or music lover, we also have a section with mugs, bracelets, key rings, music clips or pens. Check it here:
