This is my daughter Yana's instrument. It's mainly interesting as an example of new ideas in student instruments. It's made out of pear wood and doesn't have a low Bb key, but apart from that it conforms quite well to TriƩbert's System 5, the basis of the Conservatoire fingering. Wolf is very pleased with the sound, claiming that it is much less nasal than the modern French instruments. I think this is very much a matter of taste, but in many ways it sounds more like a classical oboe than modern instruments do.

This should be Wolf-oboe.jpeg.  Is it missing?
