Thomas Stanesby – a simple model of an oboe.
Before 1754.
This oboe is modelled on the original which can be found in the Museum in Oxford.
It  is a Baroque instrument, although it resembles late 18th century English straight type oboes in appearance.
Being a professional instrument, but without time-consuming ornaments, it is relatively cheep and, therefore, willingly purchased, also by amateurs and novice baroque oboists.

I am the only oboe maker who builds this kind of instruments.
