 Re: Oboe Adjustment Video

Well I followed the adjustment guidelines in the video.

My Oboe is in excellent adjustment - so nothing much could be gained.

I think the video is quite good for beginners - whose oboes might be really "whacky" and out of adjustment.

It is a very simple, and direct presentation ... and will immediately catch poor adjustments and clearly show how to correct them.

Other adjustment nuances - are better presented in the Brian Seaton guide; although the presentation because of the layout of the photos and text is more complicated.

What the video does not explain - is if you have a "symptom" where to look first. For example, last week my low D was fuzzy ..... well there are many places to look for the problem .... It was the Bb resonance key that was slightly open after a new cork tendon was placed on my oboe.

Another time the "E" was "funky" and again the problem was in the bell.


So the video is a good place to start .............. experience comes with time.

Mark
