This brand-new H.A. Vas Dias boxwood and brass baroque oboe is a museum-quality instrument pitched at A=440 for performance in modern pitch ensembles or as a soloist.
The body is stunningly beautiful boxwood, finished in sweet almond oil. The tenon ends are hand wrapped. The key system is handmade of brass.
There are very few of these handmade, museum-quality instruments available. Mr. Vas Dias has just celebrated his 99th birthday. How many more will be made?
A handmade Vas Dias reed, fingering chart, information/care page, and plush drawstring bag are included.
