This brand new H.A. Vas Dias baroque oboe is a museum quality reproduction of one made by Nicolas Hotteterre. This handmade and easy playing instrument by master craftsman, Harry Vas Dias is pitched at A=415.
The body is stunningly beautiful Boxwood finished in sweet almond oil. Tenon ends are hand wrapped. The key system is handmade of brass.
This is an inspired reproduction of a Hotteterre original which was measured and examined by Mr. Vas Dias in Brussels. There are very few of these hand made, museum quality instruments available. Mr. Vas Dias has just celebrated his 99th birthday. How many more will be made?
