 Re: Ambipoly reeds

Some reeds suit some people, others don't.

I played the Ambipoly reed at a rehearsal the other day in the same hall as the concert which has very dry and dead acoustics and I felt it didn't project all that well, so I'll give it another go tomorrow in our usual rehearsal hall which has far more lively acoustics. I was still happy with the tone, tuning and response though.

I just want an easy life and if that means reeds that work in any situation and won't constantly change with the weather (and I live on the south coast of the UK where the weather changes all the time), then that's one hurdle overcome.

If only sax system oboes were a thing and oboists weren't so hung up with 'tradition' (likewise with cane vs. synthetic reeds which really divides opinion) then that would be another hurdle overcome as Boehm system derived keywork systems are far better than what has evolved over time, although that's another topic I have and will still argue about at length in another thread.

Chris.
