what good oboe reed?
i've looked around for good oboe reeds, and while i have found www.wwbw.com/Marlin-Lesher-Oboe-Reed-473063-i1413185.wwbw
reeds to be generally good quality, but they too started making reeds not to my preference (they now have a very soft tip, and a stiffer back- just asking to break when i'm turinging around or something). i have found other hand made beauties, but they all have some quality like "intermediate" or something i don't understand, and don't want to risk. i have been playing for 4 years, and now i want something better. prefer a softish tip and a medium strong back, at medium or medium soft level. is there any maker or seller or brand that is similar or colse to my preferances out there and beneath 15 dollars?
note: you can see i barely know any of the reed terms- just the oboe and what i could elarn from my teachers
