 Re: English Horn Shaper Tips

Hmmm...I pay little attention to the tone of the crow, especially with English horn reeds, which have a shorter staple. My problem is how the reed plays in the instrument. I'm concerned with reeds that are pretty consistently 20 cents sharp when I play in a "relaxed" way. This is little enough that with some embouchure efforts, I can play in tune--but I worry that when I am stressed with fingerings and rhythm, I might relax the embouchure and end up sharp.


Still an Amateur, but not really middle-aged anymore
