 Re: Gold Beaters Skin or Finger Nail Varish

I don’t know why commercially available oboe reeds have supplemental sealants, although I guess it would make them more resistant to changes in climate as an earlier poster suggested. But clearly there are legions of professional reed makers who don’t require these “enhancements”, and in my opinion they are not necessary. A reed should readily seal so long as care is paid in proper shaping of the cane, the positioning of the cane on the staple, and the appropriate tie-length for the shape used. So sure, use goldbeaters or Teflon or whatever to salvage a reed if things are desparate. However I would regard an air leak in a reed as red-flag that signals the need to further troubleshoot your process up to that point. My 2c’s.
