Model S Oboe

The large head of Fossati S with its thin-walled body gives the instrument a round tone coupled with excellent flexibility. The balance between its bore and the placement of its tone holes gives its tuning uniformity throughout the oboe’s range. This oboe’s timbre, flexibility, and homogeneity makes the model S very comfortable to play.
