 English Horn low E warble
Author: NickSF

Hi everyone. I'm in the market for an english horn and I've been trying several out. I'm leaning towards a standard Loree, but whenever I do a diminuendo on (written) low E I get this warble/gurgling sound. It's most pronounced on the standard Loree, but I tried a Royal also and it did it too, to a lesser extent. The Marigaux I tried didn't do it at all. These are all brand new instruments. I had been playing a used Loree from about 1990 and it didn't have this problem.

I'm curious if anyone has experienced this before, or know what might be causing it. I tested it on different bocals (Loree, Marigaux, Hiniker) with no change. I admit that I'm a little out of shape on english horn, and I've only just started making reeds for it, but I had some old reeds from several different makers and the problem persisted.

Here's a recording of it. Any help would be appreciated!
