Buffet Crampon Orfeo Oboe with Howarth thumbplate

The Buffet Crampon Orfeo model oboe is a professional model for advanced players. Designed and manufactured in their French workshops, the Orfeo model is hand finished to the highest standards. The addition of a Howarth thumbplate converts the instrument to dual system.

The Buffet Crampon Orfeo model uses a different bore and tone hole structure to the Prestige model. This gives the Orfeo a broad acoustic range with a good balance between tone and intonation.
