Thanks for joining in. My oboe is a high level pro instrument that has an excellent scale, and it plays fine when I have a reed that isn't trash. I'm seriously considering just getting a couple of Legere reeds and see if I can make them work. Since I'm not playing in a pro orchestra, I think the difference in sound quality isn't going to be that important; there are people who play in local groups here who are off pitch so far I can't even tell what note they are playing.....way worse than a little harshness in the sound.
The first responder didn't seem to understand that my problem is that I cannot do the fine tuning at the end....which is why buying reeds and adjusting them doesn't work. It's the adjusting I can't do; all else is fine, and my former teacher would take one of my reeds, say "Oh it's just not finished" and make it into a fine reed in about two minutes. But I was never able to do that, and in other ways I'm not an idiot, so I decided maybe the Universe is just saying Go Do Something Else.
