 Re: Rejuvenating compressed staple cork
Author: mberkowski

Soaking the cork in near-boiling water for about 20 seconds worked perfectly, restoring an ideal fit in the Loree.

I am definitely not interested in undertaking modification of either instrument, especially since I play the Selmer infrequently. I have a stash of generic brass staples with the spongy synthetic cork which I'll probably designate for that oboe, as its sound isn't really nuanced enough that better staples make a difference.

Thanks for your replies.
