 Decker Oboe

I am currently trying a rosewood Decker oboe. Wow, that oboe plays fantastic! There is no need for a double octave key, everything plays great from low to high and such a lovely sound. I'll be honest, I really was not aware of Ken Decker until somewhat recently. I guess he only made around 25 oboes or so, but they play great and I think he is more well known for his boxwood oboes. I'd really like to hear some input from others who are familiar with this oboe or have tried them. I haven't tried the boxwood oboes, just this rosewood, but if they are anything like this oboe, then they are definitely fantastic instruments!
