Topic: EH Reed Gouge dimensions

Hi Everyone,
I know this has probably been discussed before, but I cannot find it. What is the center gouge, approximately, for and English horn gouge. I gouge my own cane -- I think its around .70 but I cannot remember.

Thanks

Re: EH Reed Gouge dimensions

Shawn,

.68-.72 mm is what I've seen. So .70 mm would be good. You can  be a lot less finicky with EH reed dimensions than with same  for  oboe.

Best,
