Allan Reeds vs. Good Tone Guild Reeds

For a while, I’ve been using Allan Oboe reeds. Good, cheap Oboe reeds for those of us who don’t have the time and/or patience (and maybe skill) to make our own. Though, I kind of wanted more tone out of them. So, in the search for a better reed, I tried some of the fabled Good Tone Guild reeds. They cost nearly double what the Allan reeds are, but they seem to have more “body” to the tone. Plus, the pitch seems a little more stable on my Oboe.

So, you might want to get some Allan and GTG’s and compare.
