It is a new reed after scraping. what's the problem? The intonation is low and unstable.

And how to solve it?

Reed's probably really soft or something. How is the E 1/2 step below the F? C# just below that? Are those also really unstable and flat?

It's difficult to say without hearing but it can be that the reed is scraped too much. If it's the reason you can cut a tip.

When I have problem I check if the first wire is loose. There's a chance it won't work on your reeds.
