 EXTREMELY flat on oboe... possible causes?
Author: tredici

I have been playing the saxophone for about nine years, and have decided to also pick up the oboe. I do not have the money for a teacher at the moment so I am very slowly trying to learn some fundamentals myself. I'm having pretty bad tuning issue: I am extremely flat on all notes, sometimes even by half a step. I'm currently using a medium-soft reed, and even by biting down it's still flat. I've tried using medium reeds before, but I struggle to get any notes out at all with it. I'm not sure if it's something to do with my embouchure, instrument or reed. What are some possible causes for being this flat?
