Topic: Joshua +2 shaper tip
I've ordered one of the Joshua +2 shapers from Adam's tips. I'll be using it in conjunction with 47mm Chudnow "S" staples (a larger bore than Loree staples). .60/.45 gouge. Just wondering if anyone has experience with this particular combination (on a Loree "ak" oboe), and might be able to offer some advice on tie length, etc. I'm switching from a ten-year-old Jeanne "X" tip (no longer in production), which is now missing an ear . I was tying at a long 73.5 with this tip, and finishing up at around 70-70.5.
Thanks in advance for your help.
