Reed Making

I have been making reeds since My 2nd year of playing oboe ( about 1974 ) After being taught how to make reeds, My teacher said I was a natural she liked my reeds so much she started to trade reeds for oboe lessons. They have gotten better over the years. And now with the new reed making equipment my reeds have be come even better and extremely consistent.
