My oboes are faithful copies of existing 18th-century oboes, authentic in every detail. They play at the same low pitch as the originals.

Each oboe is made to order, turned by hand and made of boxwood (when not otherwise specified) finished with nitric-acid stain, with tenons lapped with string.

Reeds and accessories for oboes can be purchased at the time of delivery.

The "ivory" referred to is synthetic ivory and is priced accordingly.
