Making reeds for another person is very difficult and time consuming--if the reedmaker cares about his product. I stand behind my reeds in all aspects, and if they are not right, I will MAKE them right! But, you the oboist must assist in this process by telling me what kind of player you are, the type of oboe you have and how long you have played. I also need to know if you prefer a soft, medium, or hard reed. My embouchure plays reeds differently than your embouchure or your teacher's embouchure. So, if the reed is not right, it may not be my fault! Nevertheless, I will STILL work with you to try to get the optimum reed for you. So in other words, I will work with you, if you work with me!
