Oboes can be a beautiful instrument. The
oboe requires lots of practice in order to
obtain a great sound. Sadly, many students
are actually hindered by the oboe that
they are using in obtaining this tone.
This is largely due to oboe's rather high
cost and difficulty to maintain. So
students are given an inferior instrument
in a rental program that is not performing
as well as it could.
Student oboes, stripped of proper
mechanisms and options commonly go in
the $1700+ range brand new and have very
little re-sale value while offering a
new student an instrument that lacks
fundamental key mechanisms that all
students should have. Furthermore,
intermediate oboes have now crossed
typically into the $3,000-$4,000 price range from
most brands which makes it very hard to
get a good instrument for advancing
players without investing a small fortune.
|Our Kessler Custom oboe was designed with this purpose in mind:
great playing, affordable oboe with key mechanisms of professional oboes 4 times
Our Kessler Custom Oboe is exactly what players, parents &
teachers have been waiting for!
Features an advanced professional bore
(inspired by Marigaux bore designs)
We use a new
Grenadilla & Nylon composite. This
material gives the tonal warmth of a wood
oboe, but helps reduce cost (compared to
upper quality Grenadilla wood) and gives
the stability of a plastic resin oboe.
Some lower cost oboes will use Hard Rubber
trying to accomplish these same features,
but we opted against hard rubber due to
the increased weight, and the smell that
hard rubber can develop on a tighter bore
instrument like an oboe (smell of sulfur).
The composite that we use offers the best
balance of tonal performance & response
coupled with durability & affordability.
Marigaux keywork, we employ a full
conservatory key system that features all
possible key options. These include:
- Left Hand F
- Low Bb
Octave (semi-automatic, US standard)
- Articulated C#
Ring Sytem D Key
- Left Hand
The keywork of the oboe is setup mainly
with cork pads for long term durability
and idel tonal projection.
We also include 5 of our Kessler Custom
Artist Level oboe reeds. These reeds offer
an amazingly rich tone with exceptional
response. These reeds rival reeds that
cost $35 and more. We include 5 of them
with our Kessler Custom oboe so that you
can try them out for yourself.

|What does our
Professional Setup do for you the
No instrument comes into our shop from
the manufacturers in perfect adjustment.
In fact, the longer that they have sat in
a storage facility or on a shops shelves,
the more out of adjustment they typically
are. This is due to the materials shifting
due to climate as well as pads losing
Our Professional Setup prior to
shipping is done to ensure that you
receive an instrument that plays perfectly
right out of the box. This way you get the
ideal performance without having to have
it "setup" by some other technician.
We have some of the lowest prices in
the country on instruments, no other shop
can give you this price AND this setup.
