It is a little more fussy with reeds than my Tom sparkes was (or my sisters which I have been using while mine was out of action..)

As I was practicing today I could feel it was more resistant than I am used to. But not out of realm for me.

And for the price, I can't complain. To get a Fox sight unseen was a minimum 6000$ ... And it could be one of the few lemons they make.

I did order some Jones reeds to see if the American scrape works better for me with it.

However I am not fussy enough. Any of the oboes I tried I would have been happy with. The awkward wines and the kge ones. They all had positives and negatives, and nothing that was a deal breaker. I guess the same would have been if I had bought the fox sight unseen.

But very excited... My sisters oboe needs a service. Clearly this new one won't for a while. So cheering.. Notes work and are in tune. Now to develop my sound enough to make it sound as near to wooden as possible!
