 Oboe cracking in 30° for 2 weeks?
Author: username38574

I accidentally left my oboe in a locker room that’ll be in the high 50s during the day and 30s at night. I cannot acces it for two weeks. Will it crack? I’ve read that you shouldn’t blow warm air into ever, so as long as I don’t suddenly put in warm air, should I be fine? Would the oboe not crack unless I suddenly blew hot air into it? Will it be fine in the meantime? Thanks!

If it's cased up, then it'll be fine as you're not playing it and therefore not subjecting it to sudden changes in temperature and humidity.

When you do eventually get it back home, let it acclimatise naturally at room temperature in its case with the lid open away from any heat sources or draughts and give it at least a couple of hours before playing.
