Extremely small, hard and extremely light tubular/oval case for oboe and English horn folding open along its length. All joints can embedded in shock absorbing rubber which is covered in velvet. This rubber also provides superb insulation for all of the individual joints. The woodwork is held firmly in the rubber whilst all key work is completely free to operate as if the instrument were being played! We can also suspended the instruments.
Embedded or suspended?
With many instruments, there is the option to either support them/each joint in a velvet-covered foam rubber bed, with a soft cushion on top, or to suspend each joint/s in the same shock-absorbing materials, but held from each end.
Suspended has the advantage of ensuring that all keywork hangs in open space and does not even require a cushion to sit on top of the mechanism.
Embedding the joints is well worth considering where extremely high levels of insulation are needed to protect against severe temperature changes.
With either system, Wiseman ensure that there is no pressure on any keywork and that the mechanism is free as if playing the instrument.
