spent the whole day repairing part of ONE oboe. Seems that a kid got a reed stuck in the top joint, so dad took it upon himself to dig it out with a screwdriver through the tone holes. He persisted and accomplished gouging and tearing out every main finger tone hole in the top joint(5) saying nothing of the bore damage. I had to drill out and construct replacement crowns for each one and they all had differing chimney diameters. You would think the dad would have stopped on destruction of the first hole encountered.
