My name is Corey Sweeney, owner and reed maker at Sweeney Oboe Reeds. I am deeply invested in reed making as a trade in its own right: distinct from, and yet integral to, oboe playing. I take great pride in my work, and it is my pleasure to offer a selection of carefully crafted reed types to meet your needs.

It is my pleasure to endorse the reeds of Corey Sweeney. They are consistently carefully crafted, very responsive, always in tune, with a balanced tone that is focused, vibrant and even throughout the range. High school students, college students and professionals alike praise the quality of her reeds, which are made to the highest standard.
I've been playing oboe for about 10 years, and Corey's reeds are the best I can recall playing with. As soon as I took them out of the packaging, they had a beautiful, rich tone, no extra scraping required. I'm going to be recommending Sweeney Oboe Reeds to all the oboists I know - her reeds make me sound better!
