Aperture Management In Oboe Reed Making
- by Kathy Sheinhouse
Oboe Reed Making and Understanding The Oboe Reed-Cane selection, reed construction and scrape all influence your oboe reed making result. One critical component of your oboe reed structure is the size of the reed's opening. To play well, the reed opening must be compatible with the strength of your embouchure and how you blow. Managing this aspect of the reed form and function is critical to success.
This was an impromptu lesson for Ed who was having trouble with his reed making results. I hope it is helpful to you as well.
