Excerpt from Sonata No. 3, movement 2 by Handel for Alto Sax (but I’m playing oboe)

Who KNEW that Handel wrote that for sax?! Wow. ;-)

Does a good oboe sound come from a good oboe or reed?
I have a wooden oboe but I still don’t sound like a real oboist. I use machine made reeds, if I switch to handmade reeds, will I sound like a real oboist?

The answers were all lacking. Sigh.
