Rigotti, a large farm growing, harvesting, and processing arundo donax for reed instruments, also sells other products for double reeds under their name. Many of their products are made for them by Chiarugi. Their regular oboe staples are essentially the same as a Chiarugi 2. They also now carry a 2+ and a narrow version which are not commonly seen in the U.S. The 2+ is obviously the same as the Chiarugi 2+ but we are not familiar with the narrow staple.

    Rigotti Oboe Staples

    Posted by Claire Bogdan on Nov 17th 2019

    Good for the price, but the cork is fairly thick and dry compared to some other staples. They are thicker than my chiarugi 47 staples, and those are fairly thick as well. Both my Fox 330 and Loree Royale struggled to get the staple in the oboe, but it DID go in with some pushing and cork grease.
