 Oboe hand sizes
Author: oboeyogi

I know the the answer = cost

But here goes any way why don't oboe makers make oboes for different hand size?

If you buy gloves you get a size to fit, buy a bike you get one that fits. You buy clothes that fit. But oboes you get put in the same thing or you go to a different brand.

Surely it's not to hard to have 3 key sets the suit different hand sizes and they could even be swap over if need be it could be a new market for the makers.

Any thoughts

Nicholas
