Oboe d’amore after J.Poerschmann

a’ = 415 Hz
European boxwood

Johann Poerschmann was a famous maker of wind instruments. It was from him that another future renowned maker of classical instruments – J.F. Grundmann – learnt his craft.
Poerschmann was contemporary with J.S. Bach, he also lived in Leipzich, and was closely associated with that famous composer’s circle. He was a bassoonist in the musical group of the famous cantor, and godfather of Johann Christian Hoffmann, who was Bach’s friend and collaborator. Therefore, I am convinced that the oboes d’amore used for performing Bach’s works were the ones made by Poerschmann, not by Eichentopf, which are most frequently used nowadays.
I am the only oboe maker who makes copies of Poerschmann’s oboe d’amore from the National Museum in Poznan, (Poland).

A bocal and a softcase are included.



Oboe in c by George Goulding, London

made ca.1790
Plays very well at a’= 430 Hz !
Playable scale: c1 – f3 !

Rare instrument – the true Classical oboe, not a copy!

Top and middle joint are stamped: Goulding&Co, the Bell is stamped: Goulding&Co London, Above is illegible sign/emblem (? ).

Because of its pitch, this oboe can be use for professional projects concerts/recordings; with other Classical instruments.

The oboe is after restore (cleaned, oiled, added waxed thread on tenons, etc.).

I sell the instrument together with three finished reeds – oboe is ready to play.

I made reconstruction of staples especially for this instrument (for request I am able to make additional three for free).

This oboe have a very nice sound,very well dynamic range, good intonation and easy response in all registers.

I can send sound samples.
