 Re: What sort of oboe do you play and why
Author: Chris P

"Recently, a college professor told my students that if they bought a Marigaux they would get laughed at in an orchestra, let alone even be allowed to audition on the instrument."

That's a very short-sighted and damaging opinion - if anyone tried to sway my mind like that, I'd purposely go out and buy a Marigaux oboe just to annoy them (I have a Marigaux d'amore and cor). No professor should dictate what their students play - it's not a one size fits all world and there are other oboes besides Loree (just as there are other clarinets besides Buffet).

Marigaux oboes are immensely popular with the majority of European orchestral players and soloists - nearly all the oboists in the orchestras at this year's BBC Proms played Marigaux oboes (901, 2001 and M2). If anything, they're the maker the other oboe makers are having to compete with.

Chris.
