Hi, when shop-bought oboe reeds come with what looks like a bit of 'cling film' wrapped around (the thread area and a bit higher up), is it supposed to be removed before playing?
I'm guessing not, but I'm not sure and I can't seem to find the answer online anywhere!

It should be left on.
That was quick, many thanks!

It is to seal the sides of the reed to prevent air leakage.
