By sharing his many years of study of the making of oboe reeds Professor John Dee has created a significant new addition to the knowledge of oboe reed making.
“First scrape to final crow”, is a fitting name for this method which provides a “straight-forward, efficient, effective, no-nonsense, time-tested, and proven successful step-by-step method for all levels and abilities”.
Chapters include choosing reed making equipment, knife sharpening techniques, scraping techniques, and trouble shooting. This manual assumes that the reed maker is starting with a reed that has already been tied.
