Well, I once went river rafting on the Arkansas river in Colorado. Bassoonists were on one side of the boat and oboists on the other. Brian Charles was on board but he never mentioned oboe reeds. But he was a great co-passenger.

To test the tuning of a reed, I would expect it to crow a C when the lips are on the edge of the thread and also crow a C with the lips on the very tip of the reed. In addition, the crow should not rise in pitch when you blow harder, sounding like a police whistle. If it passes these tests, it could play in tune on many oboes.

If you can, take a look at the Light book on oboe reeds.
