 Flat c’’
Author: A.

Hello All,
I have the Yamaha 841 with the lining in the upper joint, which I’ve been very happy with, but I seem to very frequently get water stuck in a keyhole when I play c’’. At least, I think that’s what’s happening...

What I experience is the note c’’ coming out very flat, and then seeming to clear and stabilize after a couple seconds. When it clears I feel what seems like a slight tap coming from underneath the key I hold down with my right index finger when playing c’’. It’s very odd, and it only happens with c’’ (well, and c’’’).

As I said, it usually seems to clear on its own, or giving the oboe a quick swab does the trick, but it happens quite frequently and it never used to happen with my old MCW. Any ideas what might be causing this? Or is there anything I can do to prevent it other than what I’m doing?

Many thanks for any expert advice!
