Topic: Oboe d'amore bocal recommendations
Not certain which catagory to post this question, so I'll give it a go here!
I have purchased a Bulgheroni oboe d'amore recently, and find that the pitch of this instrument, even with a longer (#2) crook, the pitch is considerably sharper than A440, and that the middle register tends to be a bit dull, and that the upper register is a bit unstable.
Are there any recommendations on a bocal that might help correct these situations on the d'amore? I use a Dallas bocal on my Fosati EH, and am quite happy with the results, and I am tempted to try the Dallas d'amore bocal. But, since we're all here, I thought I'd ask if anyone has any recommendations/experiences with this instrument or bocals for d'amore in general that they could share.
