 C# key pad not rising
Author: EaubeauHorn

My oboe took a fall a week ago, and some keys took a hit. I took it to someone with an excellent local reputation, he appeared to fix it, said it was all fine. When I got it home, the Bb to B was slow, as if I were doing a slide, but after wiggling it back and forth a lot, that seemed to straighten out. Now the pad that is supposed to rise when I play a low C# is not rising, so the C# still plays as a C. The octave above sounds a bit better but probably only because I am blowing harder. I have tried the "wiggle back and forth" and it is not fixing the problem. It is "as if" it needs lubrication but I suspect something is bent. Is there anything I can do myself?
