 Re: Trialing oboes with the same reeds

"his memorial service got me thinking about the oboe again, and I want to pick it back up, only maybe I'd like to pick up a different one."

My question is why do you want a new instrument? Are you dissatisfied with how the Renard plays or sounds? If so, maybe your reeds are the problem rather than the instrument. Maybe you should have a pro play your Renard and tell you what they think. Maybe you will like how it sounds when played by a good player with good reeds.

Maybe you need to try new reeds from different reed makers. There are dozens of different styles available.

If you want to get a new horn just to get one or for a change of pace, then that is up to you. But if you are now dissatisfied with your Renard when you never used to be, maybe it's the fault of your current reeds.

The other thing you might consider is to take lessons on how to adjust the reeds that you buy. My students almost never get perfectly playable reeds from reedmakers, and all their reeds need to be adjusted by me to play at their best.
