Topic: Oboe cane at 11+

I am an adult student and learning to make my own reeds. I am curious about who uses sizes of oboe cane above 10.5.  What is the advantage, if any?  Is this a size used outside of the U.S.?
Thanks in advance for any information.


Re: Oboe cane at 11+


the different sizes are:

9,5-10,0 mainly used in Scandinavia, or nothern Germany
10,0-10,5 used worldwide
10,5-11,0 mainky used in the US and Italy

11,0-11,5 is used for Oboe d'Amore
