I use a Korg contact microphone along with my Korg tuner for the same reasons you do. It makes it easier to measure one's own pitch when playing in a room full of musicians. But I didn't like to put the mic on the rim of my bell because it interfered with my short resting position (oboe upright on my right knee). When the microphone was attached, I had to rest the instrument at an angle - and that looked less than professional.
To use the microphone, I clipped it on the outside of the wooden tube. There are a few spots on the lower joint that will accomodate the Korg contact microphone clipped part way around the tube approaching from the backside of the intrument. I'm sure you can find a couple spots that won't get in the way of the key action. The spot I use is near the top of the lower joint *just* below the bridge keys.
