 Upper join G#-A linkages
Author: mberkowski

Hello all,

While I was trying to sort out an A#/B trill in the middle octave, I noticed a difference on my conservatory system Covey oboe between the LH G# key and RH G# side key.

When I finger middle-staff B and depress the LH G# (pinky), the A key (LH2) closes completely. I'm using that as my trill along with RH1. But depressing the RH G# side key, the LH2 does not fully close. I'm looking for and adjustment screw which might affect that linkage but not finding anything except perhaps the height of the bridge key (F# - G#) screw. But any change there has much more serious consequences. I don't see any missing cork on levers which might affect that link either.

On my Selmer instrument, the RH G# side key does close the LH2 A key.

So I wonder:

Does this matter on the Covey? Since that A#/B trill requires RH1 also be depressed, making it impossible to use the RH G#, would I ever actually need it to close the A?

If it does matter, is there an adjustment I can make to cause RH G# to close the A? I do have maintenance scheduled in about 6 weeks.

Thanks for your input!
