 A sneaky cause for being flat.
Author: Barry Vincent

I have a plastic Bundy Thumb Plate Oboe and the sleeve that the reeds are inserted into is a 'smigin' smaller in diameter than what is on my Howarth S2. Sometimes reeds (the cork that is) is a bit tight when inserting into the Bundy. Well , apparently owing to this tightness, when removing the reed I have inadvertedly also slightly pulled out the sleeve and just noticed this mornng that it was out by about a millimeter or more. So , to push it back in I used a small wooden block and a small hammer. Fixed. But will have to keep an eye on this in future. I can imagine if it was a wooden Oboe and the sleeve came slightly out that moisture would end up in the gap below the sleeve. I would imagine this would be a real danger of the wood cracking right there.
