No two oboe players seem to have the same results! Many years ago, I used cane that was too narrow and never really could make a good stable reed. It was suggested that I try a -2 RDG shaper tip and that helped a lot, making the reed wider and more stable which helps the pitch. Since, I've tried other shapes and understand that many people like narrower shapes, but have always come back to the -2 RDG, regardless of the source of the cane. Good luck!
