Tom Hiniker has now completed a total of four Snakewood oboes. Another two (?) may be in process- takes years from start to finish.
One is gold plated, three silver plated I believe. All have left C# key. Fully polymer lined upper and lower joints. The sleeving seems to have zero effect on the timbre of the instrument- still sounds like Snakewood. The Hiniker Snakewood oboe is simply not like anything else I have ever played in the realm of oboe. The first Snakewood oboe Tom made (was listed on Ebay) is still the single most appealing (and amazing) oboe I have ever played. A professor friend of mine just purchased a new Hiniker Snakewood oboe. It is mind bending fabulous in every conceivable respect. The present price for a silver plated Hiniker Snakewood oboe is $14,500, though I surmise this price will rise next year. Gold plating is an extra $2000. Tom's wait list is well over 100 names, estimated 10-12+ year wait at the moment. Tom is presently making an oboe for me out of Cocuswood...
