Scrape: Standard U-scrapeShape: Wide (W4)Gouge: Medium
The Minster is a medium-weight oboe reed popular with many players who like a wide reed. The medium gouge and a standard U-scrape produces an oboe reed with a good balanced scrape combining warmth and responsiveness. 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 medium-weight oboe reed with a warm and broad tone.
