This is an oboe d’amore reed that is roughly scraped but not at all finished. It’s my Day One scrape, basically, You won’t like the way this plays right out of the box, but it’s a great start for those wanting to practice reed-making or to customize their own reed. I have removed the bark, clipped the reed open, and put in a long, thick tip and a semblance of windows. It vibrates and probably has a stiff, heavy crow. The rest is up to you!
