Get more people playing the oboe!
Now is the time to introduce people of all ages to the oboe! Lets break out of the ‘niche’ category!
These days children are starting the oboe at a younger age. And adults who have long heard the oboe’s expressive plaintive call beckoning them want to play as well!
Introducing the Rocket! The Rocket is a simple Conservatoire style oboe that is designed to produce the oboe’s wonderful sound without the extra weight and extra cost of all those keys! Pared back to the basics, the Rocket will let you play all the famous tunes with a minimum of fuss. Using a standard oboe reed and incorporating a standard body design, the new Rocket-playing oboe student will “take off like a Rocket!”
