Thomas Stanesby Jr., 1692 – 1754, London

Fully ornamental oboe

A two-key oboe.
The instruments made in Thomas Stanesby’s Sr. (1668-1734) and Jr. workshop were ones of the most excellent in England of the Baroque period. Today, the copies of the oboes made by T. Stanesby Sr. and his son are the most frequently used copies of  Baroque oboes. A lot of original instruments made by the Stanesbys have survived to this day. The sound of the Stanesby’s oboes is quite open and it is easy to produce both the lowest sounds and the top of the scale on them. The distinctive feature of these instruments is quite strong and sure sound of fork fingering notes from the first octave, even if the reed is not too good.

I also make, on request, three-key copies of oboes according to T. Stanesby Sr.
