How to Make Oboe Reeds Flat

Yep. That’s the title of this ehow article.

Perhaps the writer is talking about lowering the pitch … but making them flat means you are making them below pitch. To me anyway.

Not that I know everything!

I’d just prefer the title “How to make your reeds pitch perfect!” … along with “How to make your reeds stunning!” and especially “How to make your reeds last forever!”

(Do read the article. It’s … um … interesting.)


  1. Wow! Who knew???

    Interesting that the author used Matin Schuring’s site as a reference. I don’t believe I have ever read those words in his article or book!

  2. Heh … it was such a fascinating read, no? So much stuff out there that makes me want to scream. What can ya do?
