Does Stainless Steel have a CAS Number?

However stainless steel and steel are not part of the European REACH directive (1907-2006-EC) there seem to be some examples of CAS numbers for stainless steel, however this looks more like a individual initiative from the supplier / producer.

Example: CAS 7439-89-6 ThyssenKrupp Stainless

Steel is not a chemical substansion as meant by REACH, but a product with several chemical elements. These elements do have a CAS number.

Is a oboe a brass instrument?

Rule of thumb: Brass instruments look like they're made of brass. Think Trumpet or trombone, the exception being saxophone, which is a woodwind instrument. An oboe is also a woodwind instrument.

Why is the bassoon sound lower than the oboe?

This is a basic physics concept. The longer an instrument, the lower the frequency of the sound waves coming out of it, and therefore a lower pitch. The Oboe is a small, short instrument. The bassoon, on the other hand, is a large instrument. Because it is longer, you get a lower pitch. This principle applies for all instruments.

Where does the oboe sit in the orchestra?

Usually, the oboe sits in the middle of the Flutes (on the left of the oboe) and the Clarinet (on the right). Only if its one oboe player.

If it is more than two they would sit in the middle (same place as one, above)

Its is to your band director discretion.

How are vibrations made in a oboe?

When you blow through the reed it vibrates and goes through each hole and the bell. The more keys covered the lower the noise is.

Are the bassoon's fingerings the same as an oboe's?

No, the bassoon's fingerings are not the same as the fingering of oboes.

There was a time, back when oboes were first invented and bassoons were just changing over from the single-piece dulcian to the four-piece basson/bassoon that the fingering of the two instruments was quite similar, and had much in common with the recorder and flute as well.

With the split between the German and french schools of double reed instruments, though, it's hard to say that all bassoon fingerings are alike, or that all oboe fingerings are alike!

The major difference in fingering between all oboes and all bassoons comes from the fact that the bassoon's bore is folded. This means that two lengths of the bore, the part that makes high notes and the part that makes low notes, run parallel to each other. As a result, keys that affect low notes appear near keys which affect high notes, and fingers serve multiple duties.

Because of the size of the bassoon, it is generally supported from the lower end by a belt-like strap which the player sits upon. The oboe, though, is smaller, and is generally supported by the right thumb of the player. The immobilized thumb of the oboist and the free right thumb of the bassoonist lead to further differences between the instruments. The oboist has multiple keys which are operated by the little fingers and a key and a hole with a ring (the ring acts like another key) under the left thumb. The bassoonist, though, has two keys under the left little finger, as many as four under the right little finger, between 3 and 5 under the right thumb, and anywhere between 8 and 12 keys to operate with the left thumb!

If you were to consider the basic octave, though, there is a strong similarity between all of these instruments: the three fingers of the left hand (minus the little finger), the four of the right hand, and the left thumb are employed in playing the basic octave and most of the next octave. However, in all varieties of oboe and bassoon, accidental keys, whisper/voice keys (which help to sound upper octaves) and lower-range extension keys differ greatly.

I play the oboe and tried the bassoon for a few weeks. I found that the fingerings are the more or less the same but at a fifth difference, so an F on the oboe is a Bb on the bassoon.

Can an oboe play flute music?

It very often can, but the flute goes very easily above the oboe range, so nothing above E6. Otherwise the oboist would struggle.

Is someone who plays in a chamber orchestra more skilled than a person who plays in a philharmonic orchestra?

Answer 1Chamber Vs Philarmomic orchestraEffectivly, they may well be, seeing as a chamber orchestra is much smaller and they are pretty much on their own with their instrument, but you could also say the same the other way around, that they are more skilled to be able to perform in a group. Answer 2

A philharmonic orchestra is a 'full-sized' orchestra. Today the orchestra generally comprises over 100 musicians , whereas a chamber orchestra might have only 30 or 40 musicians.

It is not so much picked for skill, but chamber orchestras mainly play works of a smaller scale than the full symphonic works of the later musical periods.

Back in Mozart's day, for instance, orchestras comprised fairly basic strings, woodwind and brass - as an example, and there may have only been 20 or 30 musicians in the orchestra.

The music was composed accordingly.

So, some pieces suit a more modest, chamber orchestra, while others work better with a full sized symphony orchestras of today. Those who perform them will generally be better suited to that style of music.

So, in essence, chamber musicians may not be any "better" musicians - this is especially given that full-sized orchestras in many countries can only be afforded by state support, and therefore, there be few in number [in some countries only one per state] as against the possible number of chamber groups around.

Where can you find notes for bassoon?

In a music book for bassoon. I have also found music online. You could also ask your music teacher or go to a music store although most music stores do not carry bassoon music. If you would like music to play you can play trombone or baritone B.C. music which is what I do. I hope this helps you!

How does the oboe work?

When you blow into it with a buzzing sound made at the reed the vibrations create a sound wave controlled by the keys and fingers.
