i think double reed’s the weirdest/cutest section ever man.


  1. You must admit, we are in contention for the weirdest section.

  2. Perhaps because we like to be viewed as different. I think a lot of oboists choose the instrument because they consider it different.

  3. I give “weirdest” to the saxes. That couldn’t have anything to do with my brother playing saxophone…

    Oboists get… most dangerous. The beginners can kill you with sound. The good ones carry knives.

  4. Very nice, Miriam, quoted.

    I don’t know, the oboe looks pretty weird. I mean, it’s got this twig sticking out the top. And it’s got lots and lots of keys. And then there’s the knife thing.

  5. I wonder if you have to be weird to play the oboe, or if the oboe makes you weird… (has anyone analysed the chemicals in those reeds?)

  6. I have always thought it was that we are unique rather than weird. 😎
