These KGE Student reeds are the low cost entry option for student oboists. They use the same quality cane as all KGE reeds. The difference with the student range of reeds is the lower density of the cane which makes the reed less resistant and easier to play. Because of this, these reeds are more suited to developing embrasures. These are a popular reed at a good entry price.
Basically this line of reeds would use the same materials and same measurements as our premium line of reeds. The difference is being that our premium professional & standard line use the cane density which is between medium hard ~ hard and student line reeds will use the cane density between medium hard ~ medium. I believe that our student line reeds would be more suitable for beginners to intermediate level embouchures.
