Fine French Oboe by Triebert

 

The modern oboe is developed by the Triebert family. As on 18th century oboes, its bell has an incurved inner rim, and the third hole on the upper joint is double. All ten keys are of silver, mounted on posts and axles; rings, wells, sockets, and a narrow thumbrest are of silver as well.

Springs are flat, of tempered steel, and are in general attached to the underside of the keys.

The keys have round cups, slightly domed, and the joints are lapped with thread."

Triébert Family (Guillame 1779-1848), Charles-Louis, and Frédéric (1813-1878)  - The family which developed and established the "modern oboe" in the 1860's. Guillame's second son, Frédéric, developed the system which was declared the official oboe of the Paris Conservatory by Georges Gillet and Francois Lorée.  The Triébert tradition is continued in the current F. Lorée Company in Paris

Henri Brod studied with the oboist Vogt and invented such tools as the cane shaper, gouging machine, and straight-bodied English horn.
