Reed Tip of the Day

Posted on September 4, 2014 at 3:55 AM Comments comments ()
I have been using Chiarugi adjustable staples for a couple of months now and I love them!  They come with 4 "screw" -on metal corks in 45mm, 46mm, 47mm and 48mm and 5 uppers (top of staple where the reed is tied onto).  My oboe plays ever so slightly flat so these are a huge help.  I tried only using 46mm staples for awhile but I didn't like the way my reeds sounded so now, instead of shortening my reed by scraping and chopping, I simply change the "cork" size.  Here is a link to Howarth's website - you can see what they look like:  http://www.howarth.uk.com  (Click on the "I" to see a picture.)  You'll notice that the price is very reasonable as well.
