The plight of the reed player is that you are only as good as your last reed. I have made hundreds of oboe reeds and transfer those skills to making fine tuned adjustments to all my single reeds. I am an endorser of JodyJazz Mouthpieces and I do Skype consultations showing the various reed modifications that apply to any mouthpiece to get maximum vibration,comfort and sound.
My Skype fee is 50.00 an hour
I have many resources of video clips,pics,etc on knife techniques and concepts of reed modifications that I will gladly pass on to you.
