Several different methods of reed making are covered in the book, because there is more than one way of going about it. Over 80 pictures and graphics are also used to help explain the reed making process.
  • It contains specific information on how to make American-style, long-scraped oboe reeds.

This style has developed into what is known as the "American" style characterized by the long scrape.
