 Charles reeds
Author: Jim22

I am relatively new to oboe, and still trying to learn to make reeds. I play a Yamaha 441. I was clearing out my some old reeds recently, and happened upon a couple Charles Double-reeds student medium reeds that I got a few years back. Now, I play with a small orchestra, and continually struggle with intonation. Usually I am quite sharp, and hopelessly so above the staff. These reeds, however, play quite comfortably in tune above the staff. They are a bit longer than the ones I have been playing. Is it really that simple? Should I try a few more of these? Should i try making some with similar dimensions? Are they perhaps a better match for my student oboe?
