A service for oboe repair, maintenance, reeds & cane by Mary Simon

About our Cane


After 25 years of processing and selling Grimaud cane, David and Vendla Weber have retired. Since they value their customers who have come to rely on their cane, the Webers wanted to provide a continuing source for gouged and shaped oboe cane. With their approval, we now have the Graf gouger set up by David Weber himself as well as his 1-B and 1-C shaper tips. If you are a returning Weber Reeds customer, you can be confident that we are offering the same cane.

Given our experience with the Webers' cane selection practices, we have decided to eliminate the distinctions between previously branded "standard" and "premium" cane in favor of offering one quality of cane that meets our selection requirements. We have priced our cane to split the difference.

The same diameter sizes are available: 9.5-10, 10-10.5 and 10.5-11. However, we have discontinued the most narrow shape, 1-A. The remaining options include both the medium (1-B) and wide (1-C) shapes.
