Marigaux 901 Oboe

We are pleased to welcome the Marigaux 901 oboe to our fine selection of instruments!  These oboes are some of the most popular instruments on the market with their full, rich sound and warm tone.  The 901 is being played by orchestral players all over Europe, Asia, South America, Australia, and in the United States as well. 4 out of the 5 finalists for the 2013 Gillet Fox oboe competition, including this year’s winner Lin Qing, play Marigaux oboes. We’re very excited to offer these wonderful instruments to our customers!

The 901 is a semi-automatic, grenadilla wood, silverplated keys.

The very heart and essence of Marigaux manufacture, the original sound according to Mr. Jules Marigaux’s standard.

  • Wood rigorously selected, dried during at least four years.
  • A traditional manufacture, true to the excellent reputation of French craftsmanship.
  • A much easier and sharper low register(double correspondence on the bell).
  • A high register which is even and direct.
  • An excellent orchestral oboe played by the greatest ensembles worldwide.
  • 3rd octave key, double F key

I definitely plan to send my oboe to the repair techs at MMI in the future. I don't think my oboe has played this well since I've purchased it!
