Our Famous Guarantee PDF Print E-mail

All Good Tone Guild™ Oboe  Reeds are guaranteed to play. If they do not play absolutely to your satisfaction, you may exchange them free of charge.

Typically a reed might be exchanged:

  • If the reed has spontaneously cracked, as opposed to its having hit something. Spontaneous cracking can happen. It is, however, relatively rare. Remember that dry reeds are especially fragile. If the reed is dropped before getting it wet, the reed can sustain serious damage. Such damage, of course, is not covered by the guarantee.

A reed often needs to be played a few times to be broken-in. Playing a reed just 5-10 minutes a day will usually suffice.
