I would assume that you have checked the height of the little key that opens over the A# - if this does not open far enough, this can make the A# pitch too sharp. There may also be a build up in the tone hole so it should be checked and cleaned. Failing that, I would strongly suggest that you put the instrument in the hands of a good tech ( one who knows enough about and works on oboes and cors as a major part of his business). I assume that you are not in the US ( otherwise you would be calling it an English Horn) - is it a thumb plate model? If you are in Australia, I would suggest you send the instrument to Richard Craig in Adelaide. He is a superb tech who was trained and worked for Howarth, If you are in the UK, maybe sending to Howarth, or even Loree for that matter. You will be pleased you did. Finding a good technician who knows his way around our instrument, and fostering a good relationship with them, is, I think better than trying to repair anything but the very basic adjustment.
