Lorée | Royal Model cR + 3 Oboe




The Lorée Royal Model ‘cR + 3’ oboe is a professional conservatoire instrument.

Founded in 1881, F. Lorée are one of the oldest specialist oboe
manufacturing firms. They have a long established reputation for
developing and manufacturing fine professional instruments in their
French factory.

The Royal model oboes have a thicker wall compared to the Etoile and standard model Lorée oboes. This gives the Royal oboe a rounder and darker tone.
