i do! i do! there's a vid of me on my profile playing it..


it's not much different from the oboe, aside from the size and weight. you might want a FHRED (quodlibet? inc.) if you are going to be playing it to keep off the weight on your thumb. you have to drop your jaw slightly in the embouchure too. the half-hole key is alittle different from oboe, but you'll be able to get used to that quickly

yes! I do! I really enjoy the tone of it; it kinda has a rich almost low jazzy tone. Although, the embouchure was a little tricky to get used to, but now it's become habit.

I wish I could get my hands on one. Maybe next year... I've already spent all my money on my lovely Loree.

Yes. First time I played a cor was like 55 years ago. Been loving it ever since.

The embouchure is a bit different. You must keep your lower jaw down. You absolutely cannot "bite" the reed. Actually, you shouldn't "bite" the oboe reed either; so my experience is that the cor actually improves your oboe embouchure and sound. And you must support the air with your diaphragm; but that helps playing the oboe too.

The worst thing about playing the cor is that you sit there for an hour doing nothing (or playing your oboe) and then suddenly have to pick up a cold instrument and play a solo. (E.g., the Frank Symphony, Scheherazade, William Tell Overture, etc.)

Then there is the absolutely haunting Swan of Tuonela and the lovely Rodrigo Concierto de Aranjuez.
