Does anyone know if its safe to have something engraved on the bell of an oboe? I've seen engraved flutes before, but never an oboe or clarinet. This is a professional instrument, Lorée 125 oboe. I'd like to have the instrument's name engraved on it, or somehow otherwise attached.

How about getting a small plaque made of silver and engraved with your information? It could be fitted to the instrument and secured with epoxy.

Not a bad plan! I'll look into it :)

Personally, I probably wouldn't do it - one day you may want to sell the instrument, and you want to be able to get the best price you can.

I think I'll try to find an engraved plaque. The instrument's name is Aeolus (Αἴολος). I'd like to get a plaque engraved in greek and attach it to the bell. I'd also get something to put on the case when it arrives, I'm not getting the fancy Lorée case, seems a bit pricey for what it is. :)

Might want to stay away from making grooves in the instrument - plastic or wood it could crack.
