Some like ’em thin, some like ’em thick.  I have them both ways.

SKU: PLAQUE Category: Tags: ,

These are the plaques I use and love. The curved ends make them natural reed cleaners, and if like me you like to magnetize your knife these plaques will respond to that magnetic force.

I have them in two strengths now – the regular ones are what most oboists seem to prefer.  My favorites are the others, though – MUCH thinner than others on the market, the super skinny plaques won’t stress your reed by pushing the blades wide apart.  These can feel a little flimsy under your fingers, though, and they wear out pretty fast, so that’s the downside…

You have to have something, though.  The plaque is a tiny but essential part of the process.
