 Gold Beaters Skin or Finger Nail Varish
Author: Barry Vincent 
Date:   2017-10-12 03:12

Goldb beaters skin has been used on Oboe reeds for a long time now and it seems to me that this is more of a tradition then using other more practicable methods such as sealing up the sides of the reed with finger nail varnish. On a number of occasions the gold beaters skin has come loose on my reeds and when I attempt to wet it and make it stay on again it never seems to. I"ve then use varnish instead which seems to keep the reed leak proof just as well. I apply the varnish to the entire binding and also a bit beyond the bindiing onto the reed itself (about 0.5 cm)
I'd like to read of the opinions of others on this subject. It just seems to me that the finger nail varnish is for more practicable and convenient to use.
