 New oboe: Buffet Virtuose
Author: PaulNorway

BUffet recently (this week) released a new oboe: Virtuose. I had the opportunity to test a prototype in april (2017). It's body is separated in two parts. A long upper part that goes down to the D-key, and a bell.

At the moment of testing I was between 2 oboes, my old Dupin and my new Mönnig and these two are really different beasts when it comes to reeds so my reeds were just all over the place when it came to flexibility, hardness and length. THe weather at the time was also "typical Norwegain spring", meaning SO not stable... This have colored my experince with it regarding tone so I will not say anything about that.

What I can say is that the ergonomics of the key were good, at least for my hands, wrists and arms and the scale was even aaaaall the way up to the upper register. It's always fun when instrument makers try new things.
