Well, Have you filled your bucket of reeds?

Remember that reed making and adjusting is a skill, starting with choice of cane, gouge, shape. On to tying technique and scraping and finally finishing take time and a lot of duds. Any faults in any step, will show at the end. Hence the Bucket.

If you have problems in any of these the best advise has been given.
Get a teacher that will show you. That way your bucket may need to be smaller before you get good reeds.

You tube videos are informative but in no way can replace actual work and feeling of the reed.

Also, if you get used to a very good reed you will think that the other ones are not good. You have to play and make the reed work for you. Don't play only on one reed, get used to different ones.

I enjoy your questions they keel the site alive and help others.

Gustavo.
