Orfeo is celebrating its 1 year anniversary!
With it’s sleek design and black rings, Orfeo is elegant, pure, noble, and light.
A wooden model is now available in addition to the Green LinE version.
With the wood version, the acoustical range is broadened, all the while maintaining a balance between register, intonation and mechanism.Playing comfort remains the same, while the wood has more warmth. In this range, oboists will find the instrument best suited to their personality, demands and feeling for the material. It is even conceivable to have both versions and switch between the two according to the interpretation of the piece to take advantage of the different acoustical qualities.
Made entirely in France, Orfeo combines reliable modern materials with the tradition of handmade craftsmanship. Orfeo was conceived by Buffet Crampon’s research and development team. Testers, acoustic technicians, professors and soloists of the most renowned international orchestras all combined their energy and knowledge to offer the reference in professional oboes.
