Oboe Hire

We hope you enjoy your newly hired instrument. Please take the time to read this document in order to keep the instrument in its best condition.

Caring for your instrument

Oboes are expensive and delicate instruments and as such extra care needs to be taken in maintenance. Please don't attempt to assemble your Oboe before being shown how to do so by your tutor.

After Each Use
A Pull Through should be used after playing as moisture left inside the instrument can cause damage and corrosion. Keys should also be wiped to prevent them from corroding.

Periodic Maintenance
Cork grease should be applied to joints to prevent them from sticking, and to prolong the life of the cork. Should you find that two joints have stuck, please do not force them apart. Take it to your tutor and then if necessary contact us to arrange a repair.
