Oboe Reed Crafting

Discussion in 'The Double-Reed Family: General Discussion' started by woodwindman, Jun 2, 2010.

  1. Hello everyone I have recently picked up the Oboe and can see why many double-reed players choose to make their own reeds from scratch. so I was just wondering if someone could describe (in detail would be very appreciated) how to craft oboe reeds and also the tools you would need to do it.

    Thanks a million,
    Woodwindman.

    I'd like to see that, too.

    And for those of us who are challenged to make anything (I think I'm missing the craftsman gene) you can often get oboe/bassoon reeds from the professors who teach that class in school at a significantly reduced rate. I don't have a link right now for the place Suzy and I get them, but I'll try to remember to look tonight.
