This information may be helpful whether you buy oboe reeds from me or any other oboe reed maker.

Soak new reeds in warm water for one minute. Remove from water and shake out excess water. Let sit for another minute.


The reed plays Flat

1)Squeeze the tip and heart area (about 1/3 ways back from the tip) closed for 30 seconds. Play the reed.





3) if the oboe reed is  still flat, displace the blades of the cane. Place the reed between the thumb and fore finger and push the top blade to the right, and the bottom blade to the left. Ultimately you are changing the internal dimensions of the reed to be slightly smaller, which gives the reed a higher pitch.

-The opening should be about the height of a Dime.

– If the reed is too open squeeze the tip closed between the thumb and index finger for 30 seconds


2)if still flat; place your thumb and forefinger on the reed just above the thread and apply a small amount of pressure. The goal is not to close the reed, but to seal the cane against the tube. This will also help high     notes speak.
