This instrument belongs to the woodwind family. It uses a double reed, which is placed between the lips, and the air travels between the two reeds into the instrument. It has a 'nasal' sound which makes it easy to distinguish from a clarinet.


Timothy Rundle introduces his instrument - the oboe.

Watch and listen to this beautiful oboe solo from the film 'The Mission'.
