Does anyone have a chart on the dimension of oboe'd amore reeds


Re: oboe d amore reed dimensions

Hi oboethomas:

Please contact me by email at with your email address and will send a PDF file on d'amore dimensions & diagram to your email. The scrape compared to an oboe reed: the d'amore reed has a little less contrast between the three main areas (slightly thicker tip, slightly thinner heart and slightly thicker back), also the difference in thickness between the top of the back and the lower portions is not as pronounced - think of a reed that plays well but not as refined as an oboe reed. Overall, the scrape is kind of in-between an oboe and English horn reed.

Kind regards,
