The McFarland Double Reed Shop

Established in 1971 the McFarland Double Reed Shop is owned and operated by Patrick McFarland , a professional musician with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for 47 years. This is the only double reed supply shop run by a professional performing oboe/English horn playing musician. We are a direct importer for the new Lorée, Cabart, Fox, Fossati, Marigaux, Howarth and Yamaha instruments.

We offer oboes, English horns, oboes d'Amore, and Bass oboes, both new and used, from student to professional quality. We also handle resales in consignment.


Thanks for visiting! We appreciate you dropping by!


We have new Yamaha 841 oboes that are lined to prevent cracking. We have the Model 841 in Grenadilla and Kingwood. and at a very attractive price. The Kingwood model is ideal for soft playing in the "basement." In fact, we've sold several to second oboists in major orchestras and one referred to it as a "life saver."     We carry only their "Duet" Model in both woods which have a liner in the complete upper section of the bore for crack protection. As with all new instruments we sell, these will be covered by our two year warranty.

On hand usually new Loree instruments, AK and Royal oboes as well as a Royal English horn at reduced prices! Contact us for prices on these instruments.
 Can you guess what composer made this statement: "
Listening to the Fifth Symphony of Ralph Vaughan Williams is like staring at a cow for 45 minutes."
