 Re: wolf tone on the oboe?

I'm with Wes on the English horn notes--not E flat so much, but definitely the 2nd octave A flat and G. And I agree with oboist 2--the key to avoiding the instability in these notes is not to take too much out of the heart of the reed.

I haven't experienced nearly as many problems on the oboe as on English horn, but once again, reeds have to approach the optimum slowly so that they're not to weak and "give in" to the whims of the instrument.
