Have you got a teacher? I'd advise you to find a teacher as soon as you can - the earlier the better, and most importantly an oboe specialist as they can give the best advice from the word go and have far more understanding and solutions than a general woodwind teacher who doesn't play oboe.

Chances are you'll be advised to use 'U' scrape reeds which are standard in the UK - there's a huge choice of ready-made reeds from any double reed specialists adn your teacher will most likely suggest a make they prefer.

Start with a soft reed and don't try to play on harder reeds too early as you'll only get frustrated. You can develop your tone on a soft reed and in a few years time you may have worked up to playing on a medium by then.

Although a harder reed will give the impression of a better sound, it won't help you as you'll be struggling to control it.

Chris.
