Le Roseau Chantant Oboe Staples, 47mm, Brass
RC1 OBOE STAPLE
This staple has dimensions close to that of the Chiarugi #2 staple. It is slightly less conical, and very stable on more sensitive notes such as G, C’, and G’ and F#’. The sound is round and easy to produce, with good projection.
Note : These staples can be used with all French makes of oboe, as well as with Mönnig, at 47 mm, 46 mm, and 45 mm lengths. They can also be used with Ludwig Frank and Josef instruments, but only at the 47 mm length.
RC2 OBOE STAPLE
The RC2 staple features a more rapid response and easier speaking at the octave. It is the most responsive of the wider staples, and retains beautiful tone and warmth in the sound.
We developed it in 2009 specifically for the Marigaux oboe Model 901, which then had a slight tendency to be low at the octave – especially on the A and Bb. By tapering the form of the cone we were able to increase ease of response and air speed.
The interior bore is relatively wide, but there is not much difference with regard to the exterior as compared with a Chiarugi 2 staple. The metal portion of the staple is slightly differently finished, and the oval end is more round than flat.
