Topic: 2013 Conference -- Did you play any noteworthy Oboes?
I wasn't able to attend the conference this year. So, in place of that I always post after and see if anyone (and everyone) tested/played/bought/found any amazing new oboes this year?
Last year the big "find" seemed to be the Bulgheroni Opera and MUSA models.
What were the amazing instruments this year?
Did anyone play any of the Buffet Orfeo's? Marigaux horns? (have heard GREAT things about the Marigaux horns and their personality and flexibility lately!)
How about some great used horns?
Elaborate please...since I couldn't be there the best alternative is to hear great finds and descriptions!
