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.
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!
Here’s how you can send me your own reeds to analyze and improve on video for your learning pleasure!
