I just followed this line of notes, and found it very interesting, especially in light of the fact that I used to play oboe for many years, and had been making my own reeds since the 6th grade. In the beginning, I wanted to have a store-bought reed or two around because I never knew if mine would turn out. I did try the plastic reed in the beginning, but even though it was easy to blow, it just never felt or sounded right. Once I got the hang of making the reeds, I never wanted one that I hadn't made. Of course, oboe reeds rarely last more than a week, so you're continually making them, but I agree with the folks here, when you've got a great one that you've made yourself, it's a tremendous feeling.
Nice to see that holds true in the world of bagpipes as well!!
