 Re: Open Hole / Ring Model Lorée

Form website searches and interviews I have searched for, it would appear that they stopped in the 50s but would make to order, they then resumed limited production because of demand in the 80s, and I guess would still make to order if requested. It is a pity that the system is not used more widely. I play on a ring model Louis and actually prefer it, even though it is a very old instrument. I started on an ring system, and changed to a plateau Loree after playing for 3 years on it, and it took an age to get used to the difference in sound. I then continued on plateau instruments until this year, and am so pleased to have reverted back to ring system.
However I am not playing professionally now, so can afford the luxury. In so many orchestras these days, all the section must play the same brand and set up. I am very pleased I am not subject to this, as I think there are much more important considerations to good section work.
