The RIGOUTAT Company is specialized in manufacturing top quality oboes and English horns.
Serving Music and musicians, our development policy has always been implemented in close partnership with renowed oboists. Our different product lines mirror this everlasting collaboration between the musicians' requirements (to allow them to fully express their sensibility) and the technical innovations put forward by our state-of-the-art workshops.
Moreover, the absolute mastering of all the manufacturing steps coupled with an optimum after-sales service have enabled Charles, Roland and Philippe Rigoutat successively to establish themselves throughout the world in the oboe and English horn field. Today the "RIgoutat sound" is a symbol of excellence. Our wind instru-ments are played abroad in orchestras and conservatories in more than 50 countries and delight numerous professional musicians and music enthusiasts who praise both their sound and longevity.
Our constant concern for the oboe rich and warm sonority can be found through-out our range of products, spanning from the Initiation model, which has been especially designed for younger children, to professional instruments which feature various bores options and music instruments for students such as the Delphine and Riec models.
After more than one year of test runs, our "J model" professional oboe has reached its maturity stage and demonstrates our will to deliver a state-of-the-art oboe which combines both a rich sonority and an ever-increasing freedom of playing. Its popularity among the most demanding musicians already ranks it as the successor of our "classic" model.
The Rigoutat company was founded in 1922.
