was wondering if I can ask you a question - I am a beginner and own a nice OBOE it already went through the shop for minor adjustments , and does not need any more work - the OBOE is vacuum tight both joints - but for some reason I can not play the low C or B or Bb - actually sometimes I can but not consistently. I had an oboe instructor (not mine) play the oboe up and down and she was able to get all the notes. So, I am thinking at this point it could be a reed or me ? I have made a few reeds of my own and notice that if I lower the resistance to play I can hit the low notes easier - BUT that is not always the case. Do you have any suggestions that I should be concentrating on when adjusting a reed to allow the lower notes speak instead of making a high pitch squeak. I have a loree series B with no f reso vent and no Bb reso key. — Thank you Stephen
