 Old oboes
Author: oboist2

I would be interested to hear of the experiences of anyone that plays old oboes by choice. I have an 1891 Loree, a 1910 Robert d'amore (Couesnon), a 1930s Louis Cor Anglais and a 3030s Louis oboe. They are all thumbplate instruments and open ring system. I play them because they are lighter than modern instruments ( I have rheumatoid arthritis) and I like the sould of open holed instruments - they seem a little brighter and vibrant. The wood on all the instruments is superb, and overall, the keywork is ergonomic - actually enabling sliding from one key to another, a little more than on some contemporary instruments that have more fingering options. I have used some of them in chamber orchestra settings, and dont have any issue with projection - but have not tried them playing in a full symphony orchestra.
