Thanks Chris

What I find the problem is more with the ring and little finger,s that could be moved just to make life easier.

Like offsetting the left ring finger key a little like how it's done on the flute but not that far. Yes the tone hole may need to rotate a little.

The left little finger keys could move up a little left f key is to low. I play Marigaux M2 with the adjusted left f key as high as it can go it's still a long way for me.

The banana key is way to low and to far away but I do manage to use is.

The M2 is the best fitting to my hands oboe that I have found that sounds good. I am short at 5':4".

Other oboes I have try have just doing fit me. They sound great and love them but got to much effort to play in comfort.

May I should go back to primates and swing from tree to tree this maybe could stretch my little fingers.

Thanks

Thanks
