Today the gouge is probably the least understood aspect of oboe reed making. While the shape controls pitch placement, the gouge affects the overall stability of the reed as well as its response, timbre, dynamic flexibility and tip opening. With the correct interior properties of the gouge, the scrape of the reed becomes secondary in importance. Unfortunately, many oboists struggle trying to compensate for a poor gouge with the scrape. The Jeanné oboe gouging machine is designed for the oboist who wants to have complete control over his or her reeds, with the ability to personalize the gouge in order to achieve the desired qualities of timbre, response, pitch stability and tip opening.
