The oboe is a double-reed instrument that plays in the soprano range. They are most commonly made from wood, but student models can be made from resin as well. As opposed to the quite similar-looking clarinet it has a conical bore and the sound is produced through a double bamboo reed instead of a mouthpiece. Because of its distinctive, bright sound and rich timbre, it is often used as a solo instrument in orchestral works.
All new instruments have been inspected and played through in our workshop to correct any problems, usually small leaks in pads and maybe some minor adjustments on the mechanics. A unique service that ensures the beginner the optimal start with an instrument that works properly.
We offer you one free service check within 6 months from the date of purchase when you buy your oboe from us.
