 Marigaux has buzzy half-hole?
Author: CogentCap

Hi all,

I'm currently trying out some Marigaux oboes and I LOVE the sound of the 901A. I've also played a 2001A and a couple of M2s. But something I can't get over...

I'm getting this crazy buzz on the 1/2 hole key?????? Like, what????

After some "science" experiments, I've concluded that the little plate that the half-hole holes are cut in is vibrating and that's creating the sizzle in the half-hole notes. This could be the key's fault, or a bad combination of wrong tube/gouge/reed length/scrape etc producing some weird physics effects, I suppose.

So my question is, has anyone else experienced this? I'm curious whether other people tried Marigaux, had the buzz, and redirected to another make, or whether other people are playing these beautiful, beautiful oboes and never experienced the buzz (if so, what are you reeds like? Long scrape? Tube, gouge?)

I'm so curious about why this is happening bc I'd be really surprised if they changed the key in this way and didn't notice that it caused a buzz...so there must be another explanation... right????
