This cane has been hand-shaped by me on a -1 shape for both oboe and English horn. They are Gilbert shapes, I believe.
The oboe cane is available in both student and professional grade. The English horn is available in professional only.
Why buy from me? I have a masters degree in oboe performance from the University of Oklahoma. I can assure you that these pieces of cane are quality, shaped accurately, and will work exceptionally well.
The student cane may have slight imperfections, but is perfect for a beginning oboist who is starting to make reeds. The professional grade is the cane that has been perfectly shaped and gouged; these are what I use in my personal reeds.
All cane will be wrapped up sturdily and shipped via Priority Mail because of its fragility and value to oboists. If you would prefer a different method, please convo me!
