While providing a wide variety of great and unique products (from cane and staples to fun thread and reed cases), the service is quick, reliable, and personable. They communicate well and always make you feel like an appreciated customer! If you’re looking for oboe products, I highly recommend using Double or Nothing Reeds. When you support DNR, they support you!”

  • “The reeds (oboe) arrived yesterday and I tried them all today. They are wonderful. Besides the fact that they all play, I love the colored string. White is boring! Thanks so much.”

    Ruth Mock Oboist
  • “I like your (oboe) reeds because they sound nice and are easier to play than store-bought reeds. They make the oboe fun to play”

  • “When I was looking to add oboe to my Winds class at MYCincinnati, I heard from multiple musicians in the Cincinnati area that I should get in touch with Double or Nothing Reeds – and I am SO glad that I did! After only one meeting with Julie, I knew we had a devoted, wonderful partner in Double or Nothing Reeds – they made a amazingly generous commitment to donating reeds to my oboe students, thus enabling MYCincinnati to add oboe to our Winds program with the confidence to know we would be able to consistently provide the kids with new, well-made reeds. We are so lucky to have a business with a commitment to supporting educational efforts like Double or Nothing Reeds in our city.”

  • I was so impressed with the first reeds I got from you – dark tone, hard cane and relative ease of playing. I also appreciate that your tips are not too open. They are worth the wait.

  • You gals sounded great at IDRS. It is always good to know that those who make the reeds also play very well on them. We are pleased to carry your reeds at Gail Warnaar Double Reed Shop and invite your customers to visit our new web catalog.

  • I found your reeds to be responsive, warm in tone, and very stable!! You are amazingly prompt, and the reeds are extremely well priced for such great quality.
