 Re: Old oboes
Author: Chris P

Only the other day I heard about someone who cut up a used Selmer USA wooden oboe and a relatively new one to compare the difference in the cellular structure of the wood on both new and 'blown out' ones under a microscope.

Only that's inconclusive as one piece of grenadilla is going to be different to another. And how can anyone tell if the cell structure changes when you can't exactly dissect the same oboe top joint when new and compare it to several years down the line when you've already destroyed it the first time round?

Chris.
