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."
