Infiniti Reeds Specially Formulated
Scented Cork Grease!
New! Birthday Cake and Cola!
Our cork grease conditions tenon corks to prevent drying and tearing.  
It also works great on reed corks for easy inserting in the reed well.   
Our formula contains natural ingredients including beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil.

Our cork grease was developed due to chronic problems with my students experiencing tenor cork tearing, even with the use of manufactured cork grease.  After consulting with woodwind repair specialists I learned that some cork grease brands contain ingredients that can not only dry out the cork but dissolve the glue underneath the cork.  I was inspired to develop this cork grease with natural ingredients to resolve this problem.  There was a grape scented violet colored cork grease on the market in the 1980s (sadly no longer available) that I used when I was a young band student. The scent and color was an interesting twist, and I wanted my students to have an alternative to the minty scented, thick, cork grease on the market so they would enjoy using it and use it frequently.  The corks are lasting much longer now, so a product born out of necessity has proven successful.

Soft Oboe Reed
Our Soft reeds are designed specifically for first year beginning oboists.  Soft reeds vibrate easily with minimal effort.  If reeds are too resistant or thick, students will apply more lip pressure to make the reed vibrate and cause the reed to crack.  

Our reeds allow for immediate response with minimal lip pressure to maintain correct embouchure formation.  We recommend upgrading to mediuim-soft reeds after 3-6 months of playing. Please note reeds are non-refundable so please be mindful in selecting your reed strengths.
Important Information for Parents of Young Oboists and Oboist of All Levels
Please note that oboe reed strengths vary among reed makers.  Reed strengths are not universal like shoe sizes.  Each reed maker designates strengths to individual preference.  Dr. Schindler has establshed oboe strengths for Infiniti Reeds based on 18 years of teaching experience, working with oboists grades 5-12 as well as college level.
For adults learning the oboe as a secondary instrument or returning to the oboe I recommend starting with a medium-soft reed since it vibrates easily and will encourage proper embouchure formation.

Dear community,

Infiniti Reeds is currently operating full time processing cane and preparing oboe reeds.  Rest assured I have no employees at my studio, so I am in full control of the quality of cane and reeds that are prepared.  I have taken extra precautions to continue to keep the studio as clean as possible.  The reeds are sanitized at several checkpoints during the reed making process to ensure the standards I require before packing and shipping.  

For all oboists I recommend adding a few drops of mouthwash to your reed water to disinfect your reeds for daily practice. Alcohol and Hydrogen Peroxide are alternatives as well.  It is important to use fresh water daily, and use a cloth or paper towel to clean the inside of the reed cup.  The film that can accumulate on the sides and bottom of the cup is often invisible until you observe the residue on the cloth after cleaning.  Also, swab your oboe daily after practice to remove all moisture from the bore. Wiping your keys with a cloth before and after playing can prevent the transfer of germs as well.  And as always, wash your hands before and after playing.  

I advise my students to discard any reeds that have been in their reed cases for two months, assuming you play on them daily.  Playing on old, deteriorating reeds can affect your health.  Breaking in new reeds every 4-6 weeks will keep your embouchure strong and in its proper position.

Please contact me if you have any concerns. Stay well, my fellow oboists! 
Dr. Schindler
