A Straight-talking Guide to Making and Understanding Oboe Reeds, 1983. Double-spaced typed book with plastic binding, 116 pages. If you play oboe at all, you know how important a reed can be...It's everything! And when you learn to make your own reeds, you won't be at the mercy of someone else making them for you--or having to buy them, only to find that half of them don't work very well.....
Author Jay Light takes you step-by-step through the reedmaking process, with clear drawings, often from the same angle you would see your own hands as you make the reed. He discusses tools, supplies, how to set up your workspace for reedmaking, includes several pages of reed troubleshooting advice. There are addresses in the back of the book of suppliers of tools, staples, thread, knives, etc.
The writing style is conversational and clear. A really practical book.
