Re: Innoledy staples oboe

I've used the silver staples and I think they're pretty decent. I use them with my no. 2 mandrel but it doesn't go right to the top of the tubes so I'm guessing a narrower mandrel might work. In terms of wall thickness, they seem to be a tad thicker than the Chiarugi ones. One issue I have with these tubes is that the cork doesn't seem glued well enough to the tube. Some of mine have broken off, even with cork grease, and loose. I think they make reeds with a slightly more "covered" sound with less complexity than the thinner walled staples.

My [limited] experience with them is that they are very open - the tip of the staple is nearly round. This has caused some problems for me in tying on the reeds - the cane tends to follow the thread around the staple, rather than staying aligned with the opening. I don't have enough experience with them yet to know what they contribute to the sound.
