I'm Wolfgang Kube, instrument maker and professional oboist, and I'd like to welcome you to my website.

For more than a decade, I've been making baroque and classical oboes. My many contacts with professional colleagues - musicians as well as instrument makers - plus my study of instruments in museums and private collections have given me the experience and precise knowledge needed to assess a professional instrument's capabilities and the demands that will be made on it. My experience shows that the right combination of staple and reed is of the utmost importance for a reliable response and a good sound.

As a musician, I know how unsatisfying it is to have a new instrument, but no one to turn to with questions about reeds, response, and fingerings. That's why I place such importance on personal contact with my customers. I see it as part of my job to pass on my experience and knowledge and to help you with all your questions and problems.

Instruments I have made are being played in many countries in Europe and South America, as well as in Australia and Japan. So please take the time to look at the offers on my website, and write to me with your opinions, questions, and suggestions.
