 Re: need help identifying an oboe

That looks like a Malerne oboe - they were bought by Marigaux in the early '70s. It's an intermediate level ring key conservatoire system with fixed low C#.

Socket cracks are relatively easy to sort out and the sockets are metal lined anyway, so once they've all been taken apart, cleaned up and properly refitted, it'll give you no further grief.

Any socket cracks that do run into and terminate in the toneholes can either be filled in and levelled if you can be sure they won't reopen (although that's not a reliable fix), or bushed with ebonite or plastic to make sure they never reopen and cause leaks.

Chris.
