 Re: New oboe, some random questions/issues

The extra adjusting screw on the Eb pad cup (just below the pad cup) is to finely adjust the amount of free pay between the RH Eb key and the pad cup instead of having to sand the cork down. Howarth XL, XM and LXV oboes have that too.

The split RH3 fingerplate SHOULD have the outer ring higher than the inner ring to make sure the F# pad closes - just as any ring key on a clarinet or other instrument has the ring keys marginally higher than the tonehole chimneys to ensure the pad closes.

This oboe also has a low B-C link so you can play low B or Bb without having to hold the low C key closed. It will impair some upper register or altissimo notes if you use the low B key on its own to resonate or improve response if them.

Chris.
