Be sure you adjust the correct screw on the low C key on cors if they have two fitted to them. If they have just the one screw, it's to adjust the RH mid fingerplates as on oboes.

On most cors (1), the one (B) on the touchpiece arm (in the same place as on oboes) is to adjust the closure of the forked F vent to give the correct venting of the altissimo notes and doesn't adjust the RH mid finger plate.

The one (A) that's fitted on the arm much further along the key barrel (next to the Eb touchpiece) is the one that adjusts the closure of the RH mid fingerplate, so that's the one to adjust.

Some cors (2) have two adjusting screws on the low C touchpiece arm right next to each other - the outer one (A) nearest the RH3 fingerplate is to adjust the RH mid fingerplate and the one going through the touchpiece arm (B) regulates the closure of the forked F vent.

See attachment in the next reply.
