Since 1989, F.Lorée has offered a masterpiece, the “ROYAL”, which combines musicality, reliability, and beauty. Special attention is paid to the selection of the wood, and only the pieces with the most beautiful aspects are used for its manufacturing. This instrument appeals to those looking for a darker and rounder tone given by thicker wood.
Special Features of ‘Le Royal’:
- Adjustable thumb rest to improve natural positioning of the hand and comfort
- Tenons with dual metal reinforcement to prevent wobbling joints
- Adjustment screw to regulate the height of the medium C key to nuance the color and intonation of the note
- English thumb plate
- Grenadilla wood
- Silver-plated keys
- All trill keys – 3rd octave key
- Forked F resonance key
- Left hand F key
- Low B flat resonance key
At the manufacturing stage these instruments had optional variations – so although this instrument normally used a full conservatory plateau system, it has instead been fitted with an English thumb plate system. Furthermore, F. Loree stopped manufacturing oboes of this specification – making this a rather unique instrument.
This particular instrument is in excellent condition and would suit both players looking for an instrument with Low ‘A’ for improvisation, as well as for classical pieces.
Comes complete with original case and carrying cover for the case.
