Last month I was in a Reeding Circle with two of my regular attendees. It was an exciting event because BOTH of them had major reed breakthroughs and made multiple really good reeds in a row, just as we sat there together! Secondly, it was interesting because BOTH of them had the exact same problem in their very different reeds – they hadn’t taken enough out of the windows.
In today’s Five Minute Reedmaker video, I discuss this undersung area of the oboe reed. I show how to use it, how to scrape it, and WHY.
