Tiery J10 Student Oboe
This instrument is the fruit of a cooperation between Fossati and Jean Marc Liet who tunes the english horns. This oboe has been designed to allow young kids, aged from 5 to 6, to play with a light and normal instrument. Thanks to that instruments they get used to the embouchure as well as the position of their fingers. To be played, this instrument does not require a special reed. The reed has to be quite scraped to make the playing easy for the children. The bore as been designed for this purpose and doesn't not allowed to play with hard reeds. Many scores in C, G or F are on sale. At this stage, the kids are more playing like nursery rhyme than proper classic pieces.About Fossati
Gˆrard Fossati created his first instrument in 1983 bringing to it his already extensive skills and experience. He also showed a strong desire to improve the oboe making in general. His wish has always been the optimization of the whole instrument (i.e mechanic, sound, tune.) so has to suit best musicians' expectations. Thanks to the combination of his know-how and to the use of new technologies (CAD for R&D, numeric lathe.), the Fossati instruments have acquired a forever lasting reliability. 20 years after the setting up of the firm, this alchemy has made the Fossati brand an important name on the international oboe market. Gˆrard Fossati considers that the musicians have to be at the core of his thoughts in the process of instrument making. This is why he works ´ hand in hand ª with many players. From Brazil to Russia or from Japan to the USA, Gˆrard Fossati does not hesitate to travel the world to meet them.
