 Adjustment guide for the Thumb Plate Oboe
Author: Barry Vincent 
Date:   2017-04-20 14:25

This is an adjustment guide for the Thumb Plate Oboe (based on the adjustment screws that are to found on the Howarth S2). I have used Brian Seatons guide and have modified it for the Thumb Plate Oboe. I've asked Brian for permission to do this and here is the correspondance via e-mail between Brian and myself :-
Hi Brian. I'm an Oboist who lives in Australia. I use an Howarth S2 English Thumb Plate (1955) Open Ring system. I have studied your "Oboe Adjustment Guide" and would like to ask for your permission to modify it for the Thumb Plate system. After I finish doing this I would then send you (via e-mail) the draft of this for you to check out and then perhaps include it on your web site (North American Oboe House) A few Oboists that use the Thumb PLate Oboe would very much appreciate this.

Hi Barry-
Sounds like a great idea. Go for it! I am happy to help more oboists understand their I instrument.

Happy reeds,

Brian Seaton

Hi Brian. Thank you for giving me your permission to do this. I'll start working on it straight away.
It will be the actual adustment information section of your narrative mostly. Barry
