Have any of you ever heard of the Tempest oboe? (Weird name, in my little opinion.) I’ve never heard of it, but I’d be willing to give it a try, since it’s only $1595.00. I’ve yet to find anything at that price that I’d recommend. Maybe they’ll send me one to review here, eh?

I’m always leery of a company that makes so many instruments. I see these at their site: clarinet, euphonium, flute, French horn, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, tuba, violin, oboe, bassoon, guitarron, and vihuela. Um. Okay.


  1. Maybe it’s just the recording or the mic or something, but to me it sounds thin in a weird way.

  2. Yep, the sound isn’t great, but I don’t know if that’s the oboe, the mic, or the player. I think they should send me an oboe to try it … don’t you? 🙂
