I haven't tried them myself, but Stuart Dunkel is a highly respected oboist and no doubt makes excellent reeds.

This is maybe a dumb question, but is Suzy's instructor an oboist? Most oboe teachers ought to be able to provide reeds themselves, either included in the cost of lessons or for a reasonable price. This is a far superior (and cheaper and more convenient) way to get reeds, even over buying them long distance from a very fine reedmaker.

The problem is that the reed really has to suit the player, the oboe (or English horn), the musical situation, etc. So a really great reed for Stuart Dunkel isn't necessarily a great reed for Suzy.
