Topic: bass oboe reed crow

I will be playing bass oboe next month on the ubiquitous Planets and am looking for some reed answers please.

I bought BO cane and staples and have questions before embarking on this new endeavor. I understand I should wrap as long as I can without leaking (as per David Weber) but what should the pitch of the crow be? And is it correct that the crow should be more bassoon-like instead of our nice clear octaves?

Thanks so much.

Thanks, Alex.  I managed to get it all figured out and had (4) good performances.
