 Re: wolf tone on the oboe?

A couple of comments. As for old Loree oboes, I currently own (original owner) and play two old Lorees. The B natural key is sometimes added for middle e, f#, and g to bring down/darken the pitch/sound on these these notes. I did this in my earlier years of playing, but now I use my embouchure to make the necessary adjustment. There is nothing wrong with these old oboes as far as stability goes.

As for wolf tones on oboe, I do not believe there is such a thing. Yes, some notes can be unstable, but this is usually due to a bad reed, or less likely, a damaged bore or leaky oboe. Concerning reeds, check out what “oboist2” has to say above – good advice.
