Charles Double Reed Company was founded by a double reed player who was frustrated with their options for buying quality double reed materials.
Charles Double Reed Company's goal is to bring the best possible shopping experience to every player, friend, and colleague who visits us in-store or online looking for instruments, reeds, cane, tools, accessories & almost everything else that an oboe or bassoon player needs. We specialize in double reed services including repairs, appraisals, consignment, and more for the performing and practicing musician.
Charles Double Reed Company's goal is not just to carry all of the premium brand handmade reeds, reed making tools, kits, cane, books, guides, and knives that an oboist or bassoonist may need, but to provide services and a shopping experience that a person would expect from a truly customer-focused store.
Our Return Policy is straightforward and easy, our Satisfaction Guarantee on Hand Made Reeds is second to none. Add to that our deeply knowledgable staff, no restocking fees on returns, and tons of information to help in all aspects of double reed playing. We hope it is an easy choice for you to choose Charles Double Reed Company when shopping or researching your next instrument, and all the supplies you may need.

Our premium brand selection includes Fox, Rigotti, Loree, Pisoni, Rieger, Ghys, Altieri, Duco, Allied, Vandoren, LeBlanc, Wilson, Dampit, Korg, Sterisol, Chopsaver, and many more.

At the end of the day we strive to carry a superstore sized selection of double reed needs while maintaining a local shop feel when we answer our phones and respond to your emails.
