Hello, this is my first post on here.

Recently, I was at the Texas All-State convention as a student, meaning I was playing my oboe for about 8 hours a day from Wednesday to Saturday. My oboe is less than two years old, and was recently given to me from my director, who had broken it in previously. I don't think he played on it that often after the initial breaking-in process. I think I take pretty good care of my oboe. I warm it up with my hands before I play, and always swab afterwards.

On Saturday at the end of the day (after playing in rehearsals and concert), I was inspecting my oboe when I noticed a crack through the third octave key tone hole and a very long one that ran from the top of the D and C# trill key tone holes down to the first finger tone hole (It's called a tone hole right?). The first crack goes through the third octave key tone hole. The second crack goes straight through the D and C# tone holes, and is only at the top of the first finger tone hole.

I didn't see these cracks earlier in the day when I was inspecting my oboe (about 8 hours earlier). Maybe I just missed it, but I doubt that because of how pronounced they are.

I will talk to my director and private lesson teacher tomorrow (of course!), but I was wondering how bad these cracks look to others, and if it's as big of a deal as I think it is.
