 Shortening the Stable
Author: Barry Vincent

Lately I've been experimenting with cutting off a bit of the cork end of the stable to see what happens to the intonation and stability of the Oboe. I started experimenting with this lately because of the cold weather and the difficulty in getting my Oboe to play with a CD recording at A440 although I suspect that CDs are recorded at a touch higher than A440 (more like A442/3)
I know that the general consensus is that you are not suppose to do this because of negative results. However in practice I can only detect perhaps a slight problem with stability. But it certain solves the problem of not getting up to A440 'concert' pitch. As for the slight instabiliy it's nothing that I can't handle. The amount of stable I remove is approximately 6/7 mm. Sure beats cutting off a bit of the cane and then trying to reshape the cane profile. Yes. and I know that when you do this you are actually removing a bit of the actual bore of the instrument.
