I play on a Rigoutat (the site is currently not up and running, surprise, surprise) English horn and I love it. (My oboe is a Marigaux and I love that and my second Marigaux as well: I’m definitely not a Loree girl, contrary to so many American oboists.) I wonder what will happen to the brand now. I’m not very familiar with Buffet, to be honest. The only thing I do know is that their Greenline oboes can have tenon issues: I’ve read several stories about the tenon breaking off, and heard one story live and in person from a colleague who experienced the issue with a student. That was quite worrisome.

I read the news here.
