Title

oboe & English horn reed case
re-purposed from an old cigar case

Description

This cigar case is one of many. It was the first one I owned, which was actually gifted to me by my professor at Millikin University, Tina Nicholson. She is a gifted oboist, so it was an important moment in my education. Although most oboe & English horn players don't smoke as they need substantial lung strength, many carry around several cigar cases as the compartments in them are the perfect size to house oboe reeds. This one is from the Macanudo company, a brand imported from the Dominican Republic.

Type

An old cigar case, repurposed to hold oboe reeds. It features bright colors in the logo of the company on a white background. Inside are several compartments separated by a thin foam piece. Laid gently into the foam are the English horn & oboe reeds.
Reeds are carefully shaped pieces of French cane plant tied with string to a metal and cork pipe. These reeds vibrate to make a noise.
