INTRODUCING KGE REEDS NEWLY DEVELOPED AMERICAN STYLE PROFESSIONAL OBOE REEDS !!!!!!!!!

AFTER A LONG PERIOD OF DEVELOPMENT, WE HAVE SUCCEEDED IN PRODUCING A NEW STYLE OF OBOE REED FOR THE AMERICAN OBOIST.

WE ARE SURE THAT THIS IS A HUGE IMPROVEMENT ON THE AMERICAN STYLE REEDS WE PREVIOUSLY MADE.

THESE NEW REEDS ARE THE RESULT OF EXTENSIVE TESTING AND CONSULTATION WITH SOME OF THE BEST TEACHERS AND PERFORMERS IN THE USA TODAY.

 

Question: What is the difference between the reeds which have been shaped dry as opposed to wet? What effect does this have on the reeds tone/ intonation?

 
Answer: The reeds shaped dry and wet are actually shaped on the same shaping tool. The difference is that if the cane is soaked before shaping, it comes off the shaper more narrow after it has dried than when it is shaped dry. Therefore, shaped wet cane has a tendency to be higher pitch than shaped dry on the finished reed. Cane shaped dry has a more "full" tone and is more vibrant due to the greater surface area of the reed.
