My Hand-dyed reed thread is made by Squirrely Stash, a small U.S business specializing in beautifully colored thread for making oboe reeds and bassoon reeds. Each spool of reed thread is dyed in small batches to ensure consistency and product quality.
"FF" Nylon is the most popular option for making bassoon reeds and oboe reeds due to the reed thread's extra strength and exceptional appearance. "FF" Nylon reed thread seals well even without the use of wax.
I have been using Squirrely Stash for several years to make the professional oboe reeds. I feel that the brilliant colors liven up my reed making experience. I really love Squirrelly Stash reed thread, and I believe you will too.
