"The Oboe Doctor - A Guide to Repairs and Maintenance" by Marc Schaeferdiek
This book confines itself to guidance for carrying out minor repairs, adjusting the mechanism, and caring for the instrument generally. It does not attempt to replace an instrument repair person, but highlights the importance for oboists of manual skills besides reed-making. With this book, Marc hopes to encourage oboists to take an interest in the technical aspects of their instrument and to show concern before a problem becomes a concern! Prof. Helmut Hucke describes this book as having a clear, systematic structure which is suitable for beginners and advanced players alike.
