This 26 gauge brass wire is specifically sized for English horn and oboe d’Amore reeds.
It is made of non-ferrous soft brass, with enough give to work effectively, but rigid enough to stay where you leave it.
Wrap it two or three times around the base of your English horn, or oboe d’Amore reeds, tighten and twist. It provides stability and the ability to manipulate the shape of the tip opening.
This one ounce spool contains approximately 13 yards of wire and will last for hundreds of reeds.
