Marigaux Model M2 Oboe with Howarth thumbplate

Howarth is proud to have been selected by Marigaux to be their exclusive UK dealer. For over fifty years Marigaux has been a leading French oboe manufacturer, and remain the maker of choice today for many professional players in the UK and worldwide.

All Marigaux oboes are tested and tuned by Mr Michel Crocquenoy - Orchestre National de France, Mr François Leleux - International Soloist / European Chamber Orchestra, Mr Christophe Grindel - Soloist - Opéra de Paris, Mr David Walter - CNSM Paris, MR Jean-Marie Poupelin - CNR Cergy.

The Marigaux M2 + TP is a conservatoire model (supplied with two top joints) with thumbplate and repositioned 3rd octave key.

The M2 is Marigaux's latest professional model incorporating several radical new features designed to enhance intonation, tone and durability. The top and middle joints are replaced by a short head-joint and long main joint, producing superior intonation and reducing the risk of wood cracking. The oboe is supplied with two head-joints, with our standard stock model offering grenadilla and resin head-joints to enable playing in varied atmospheric conditions. Different length top joints are also available by special order.
