I'm sorry I don't really understand your question. Are you asking if it is ok to use a hard reed? It is fine as long as you can play on it. There isn't one hardness of reed that works for everybody. Some people prefer softer reeds over harder reeds and vice versa. you need to play on the strength of reed that works for you.

I used to play the clarinet, oboe is much better (in my humble opinion). It took me a while to make a sound. Keep trying!
