This brand new, unplayed H.A. Vas Dias baroque oboe is an exact reproduction of one made by Nicolas Hotteterre. It’s a gorgeous work of art and an easy playing instrument. This oboe is supplied with a handmade Vas Dias reed which was made for this instrument. It 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.
A handmade Vas Dias reed, fingering chart, information/care page and plush cotton corduroy bag with drawstring are included.
