K.Ge Reeds' Head office is in Shanghai and from there all activities are directed, from the harvesting of tube cane to the finished reed products. Our oboes are also made in another part of this workshop and we have 60 plus workers in these different parts of the workshop. Additionally, our very popular reed making machine is made and assembled here and carefully tuned before being sent out to our growing number of customers. K.GE actually represents the initials of the company founder, Mr Kexun Ge and he started this business when making reeds to pay his way through his music studies in London. His reputation ihas now grown to the point where he is regarded by many as the finest maker of oboe reeds in the world. K.GE Reeds now makes huge quantities of reeds, supplying reeds to oboists and bassoonists in many coutries throughout the world, including the USA and most countries in Europe. The numbers of reeds made at K.GE are growing every year and with our wonderful workers we are managing to produce more and more reeds of the highest quality. An important part of maintaining quality is controlling the quality of the supply of cane, which K.GE manages in its fields in China. This was managed after extensive testing from many sources within China, until the best sources were selected In the last few years, Kexun himself has developed a reed profiler for oboe, cor anglais and oboe d'amore reeds that has also pushed our production consistency to new heights. The machine is so effective that many of Europe's top professional players use it for their own reed making. This machine is now available for anyone to purchase, even though it was originally developed for use in the K.GE reed workshop
K.GE REEDS manufactures oboe reeds, bassoon reed, cor anglais reeds and oboe d'amore reeds. There are low cost reeds available for students as well as professional standard reeds. Additionally, K.GE makes reed making accessories, including its own cane which is grown and harvested in China. In recent years, K.GE has developed its own brand of oboe designed in Australia and made in our Shanghai workshops
K.GE supplies reeds and oboes to retailers in many countries as well as having its own online store http://www.shop.kge-doublereeds.com/
K.GE also supports many double reed societies in the world as a sponsor and generally supports oboe and bassoon teachers in their efforts to train young oboists and bassooonists with our student line products, both reeds and oboes. We often travel to different countries to exhibit these products at festivals, as well as to festivals within China
