 Re: What sort of oboe do you play and why

I play a Marigaux 901. This is my fourth Oboe.

I am a very competent non-professional Oboist.

Previously, I owned a Fox, Fossati Tiery, and Loree.

I chose the Marigaux over the Loree for a few reasons:

The instrument is more reed friendly, the scale is more consistent in the upper register, the tone of the Oboe is warm and inviting whereas my Loree was more edgy in its tone. Additionally, from recent experience the Marigaux company is super accommodating to its customers.

My orchestra colleagues really enjoy its sound within the ensemble.

Mark

PS: I did make some adjustments made to the lower keys (C< C#<EB). The Loree keys are positioned a bit higher/up which worked better for my hands ... so I raised the keys on my Marigaux. For those who are uncomfortable with their key work whatever your instrument ... these adjustments are readily available by a good chairperson.
