 Re: Lined oboes vs. synthetic top joint oboes

Of course I would never knowingly subject an oboe to "massive and sudden temperature changes". That was not at all what I was suggesting! My concern was more related to unexpected changes in household temperatures.

For instance, when my furnace failed in the middle of a hard freeze, I wasn't worried about my pipes cracking. I was worried about my Loree. And when we lost power for a week after a tropical storm in mid-August, I wasn't worried about the walls buckling. I was worried about my Loree.

Normally you could expect an oboe to survive something like that, especially if it is allowed to recover on its own without the additional stress of being played on. A quality wooden oboe (with consistent humidification) should be capable of small degrees of swelling and contracting without lingering damage.

But what about a lined oboe? How can the wooden portion of the oboe withstand those kinds of changes if it is already fixed to a more rigid material??

Christine.
