Chiarugi Brass Oboe Staples with O-rings, 47mm, M (Midway Solid)
The solid brass staples contain three O-rings. These have a #2 bore size. Brass, usually creating a sweet tone, is very thick on the solid although these midway solid staples have less thickness than the full solid staples being that the solid section only goes half the length of the 'S' staples. These staples will require more scraping and effort to blow but give greater volume of sound. Extra O-rings are available for the asking. To extend the life of your O-rings, it is recommended that you lubricate them with your reed-soaking water before inserting into the oboe.
