That'd mean the fingerings are simular to sax and clarinet. It should be in the key of C.Is it probably in the key of C? Does that mean it has the same fingering as the clarinet?
Wikipedia said:A variant form using large tone holes; the Boehm system oboe, was never in common use, though it was used in some military bands in Europe into the 20th century.
I've had to bring my oboe chops back to reality lately thus I'm now perusing the double reed section.Steve casted Threadus Resurrectus!
That's an interesting Loree info. I thought I came across that sax-oboe like instrument recently on eBay. I was perusing oboes and saw one that had the long RH pinky keys - i thought it was an illusion from the angle of the picture but who knows now.Doing a quick Google search to see if any of these things are currently for sale, I came across this article about the Loree oboe with sax fingerings -- which also talks about the Boehm Buffet-Crampon oboe.
Quoting the article's footnotes: "The term 'Boehm fingering' is often applied (by analogy to the Boehm 1832 flute) to any woodwind keywork that produces F as 1234 and F# as 123-5."
