Topic: Effects of weather changes

Has any forum member identified the correlations between certain weather changes and how our instruments and reeds respond?  And what measures can be taken to compensate?

Re: Effects of weather changes

I do know that it seems much easier for me to make reeds (bassoon) when the humidity is very high or even raining.  I tell my students anybody can make a reed that plays while it's raining, LOL.  Sometimes I have experienced a reed that changed dramatically (rarely, if ever, for the better) while I was playing a concert, and have later discovered that a high pressure system came through during the concert.
