Topic: Need oboe staples on the cheap cheap cheap!

Hi. Lately I've taken on a slew of new Jr. High and high school students, and need to make make them reeds quickly and cheaply. The quickly part is being handled quite well by using profiled cane, but I was wondering if someone could tell me where I can buy oboe reed staples really cheaply. The cheapest I've found are sold by Advantage and are $0.95 each. Any cheaper sources that you know of?  Thanks.

Hi David,

I'll send you a bunch from my staple  graveyard, if you're interested. How would 50¢ apiece be? Lemme know.

Hi John,

Regarding the staples, I was thinking in terms of new staples. But I'll keep your offer in mind.

Thanks.

David, I just saw and ebay item of 10 staples with a starting bid of $9.99. Maybe you could work out something with the seller.
