I’m responding today to a note from Jonathan about stability.
Stability in an oboe reed is a big concept, and varies greatly from person to person and style to style. I have some ideas, though, and share them cheerfully.
In this episode:
What is stability?
Where does it come from?
How much of it do you want?
What do you do when your reed is TOO stable?

Here’s the YouTube playlist with all of my other Five Minute Reedmaker videos. You could subscribe right there if you wanted to – I’m dropping a video each week until I run out of things to talk about.
Here’s my website, where you can order reeds or cane or ask me questions. Questions will keep these videos flowing!
