Topic: unmatched blades
Does anyone purposely make the upper blade of the oboe reed heavier with a shorter tip(not shorter blade). This would go hand in hand with the concept that the upper blade has different function than the lower. This perhaps would apply to people who have more angle ...head to instrument..ie instrument more downward. The reed position in the mouth would be more situated behind the top lip than symmetically centered in the oral cavity. Any thoughts?
