Still suspicious? I know I would be, because we as oboists have been so accustomed to the disadvantages of playing the oboe - it is hard to blow, the reeds will never be perfect etc. - how could this be bettered, just by changing the cork on the staple? And who is this guy anyway, is he a real oboist?
consider myself a good amateur oboist, I did attend the Royal College
of Music in Copenhagen for four years, had the best of teachers (Jørgen
Hammergård & Bjørn Carl Nielsen), but decided that playing
and practising music every day professionally, was not the right thing
The Nissen Tube has not changed my playing completely, but it has certainly given it a boost, I could not do without. You can listen to some clips, where I play the staples.
