The Marigaux 901 professional model oboe is the flagship model from the French instrument manufacturers.
Designed in collaboration with leading Marigaux artists, the 901 is indicative of the original 'Marigaux sound' as first pioneered over 50 years ago. The 901 model is handmade to the highest standards by Marigaux craftsmen in their factory.
The 901 model is available in high density Grenadilla wood (dalbergia melanoxylon) with silver plated keywork. The addition of a Howarth thumbplate converts the instrument to dual system (English system).
The synthetic top joint is made from a high density material. It responds in the same way to the natural wood but is resistant to changes in humidity and temperature.
