Actually, that describes me almost perfectly, but is proper technique really to have to be continuously bending every note down to concert pitch? Isn't it better to have a reed adjusted to play centered comfortably at concert pitch and bend only the notes you have to due to oboe note to to note and octave to octave differences? Now, A on the staff is not necessarily the most centered or stable note on my oboe, so it might need a little bending. Id have to think a little about a good note tomconsider when adjusting a reed. Maybe D. I happen to have a few reeds right now that are centered pretty well, maybe even flat on a few notes.

I actually think I can match a pitch by ear better than by looking at a tuner, but i haven't really tried it with the orchestra. If we play with a piano or harpsichord, i try to take the pitch from there, not sure I am always successful. The conductor has way better pitch than I do. 😉
