Scrape: Standard U-scrapeShape: Wide (W4)Gouge: Thin
The Blake is a lighter-weight responsive oboe reed suitable for many players from the early stages to accomplished musicians who like wider free-blowing oboe reeds. The thin gouge and a standard U-scrape combine to produce a reed with a well balanced scrape providing tonal clarity and increased resonance. The shape is wide with a large internal volume creating a broad tonal colour.
Some players find the wide shape can cause wallowing of 2nd octave F#, G or G#, or the pitch to be too low overall. If you need the pitch raised you can order these oboe reeds to be made on shorter 46mm staples by writing this in the “Notes” box above.
Overall these features combine to offer a lighter-weight responsive oboe reed with a clear and broad tone.
