 Re: Trialing oboes with the same reeds

Find another teacher player who is willing to try out the instruments, and pay them if necessary. I did that when I was getting back into playing more and I'm glad I did. I was used to sounding like I did on my previous oboes--which wasn't necessarily where I needed to go. It's not just about the reeds. More experienced players--pros if you can find them--can sense an instruments possibilities better than amateurs just picking up the instrument after an hiatus.

(That said, I was able to pick out a pretty good English horn on my own, even though I hadn't played English horn before. I could tell what the not-so-great ones were, and the Lorée I ended up with turned out to be about as good as I could have hoped for. I was, perhaps, lucky.)


Still an Amateur, but not really middle-aged anymore
