Dear Beatrice,

if I understand your post correctly, you abandoned playing oboe because of reed
problems. That's a pitty. My recomondation would be to restart and try to buy finished
reeds
+ from your teacher, or if this is not possible
+ from a source recommended by your teacher, or from
+ a specialized double reed shop (charles music, mid west musical imports,
forrest music, aria, .......)

If you pay ~25 US$ for a decend reed, a profiler will never pay out for a typical amateur
player who needs ~15 reeds per year.

Most profilers require some hand finishing. Therefore the template needs
to reflect your profile only approximately .The only exeption I know is the Bucher
machine mentioned in my previous post which is about as expensive as
250 reeds (while the "normal" ones have a prize tag of ~80 reeds).
Mr. Bucher gives you templates for trial and also offers to make them according
to a sample reed provided to him (like other vendors).

The decision whether to play a long or short scrape reed you have to take together
with your teacher. If you play nicely, nobody will care for the reed you use for that.
However, "European" style reeds differ distinctly in sound (Listen to recordings
fo US and European oboists). So if you want to play in an ensemble it seems of
avantage to stick to your local "sound tradition".
