I'm with Mark on this one, and had the same problem with a previous instrument. When you stand the oboe vertically you are essentially telling whatever water remains up top to go wherever it wants. And if you're having a bad day then it will trickle right down into the octave vents. [mad]

I now have a new oboe and have decided not to put it on vertical stands. It is developing a nice little water channel down the back, and that's where I'd like it to stay!

Does anyone know of a manufacturer that makes a slanted stand?
