Jim - one can lower the crow on reeds by scraping a little on the hump area next to the tip on both sides of the reed with your reed knife. To soften the reed, one can scrape a little on the corners of the hump near the tip. All this is done with a steel plaque inserted between the blades of the reed. You need to own a sharp reed knife. I've used inexpensive Vitry hollow ground knives for decades. Good luck!

For the flute, the deep frowning embouchure can make playing in tune easy. Try it on some long tones, watching the tuner!
