Delphine Oboe

The DELPHINE

The DELPHINE, a beginner's instrument par excellence, is highly appreciated by the Conservatories. Descending to low Bb with a resonance key, it has the left F key, the F resonance key and the very important B to C# trill. This beginner's oboe exists in the North American variant. Its ergonomics, intended for small students, as well as its low price have made possible the beginnings of a large number of students.
