 Re: Short scrape vs Long scrape reeds

To play a long scrape reed you must have the proper "set-up".

The style does require a relaxed embouchure. I suggest a "narrow shape" Mac+ or Mac++ with a good staple that works with that shape ... I use a chairugi 2+ and the reed must be in the proper proportions in all areas of the reed. The reed should be easy to support.

My experience with short scrape reeds are they are more resistant to play. (I believe the gouge for short scraped reeds is different too). Look at how Peter Cooper plays compared to Christoph Hartmann.

You can can get a rich open full complex Oboe sound on a well balanced and easy free blowing long scrape reed.

Just remember different Oboe manufacturers have instrument with different characteristics and resistance.

I play a Marigaux 901.
