Howarth XL Conservatoire (French) System Cor Anglais (Body in Cocobolo)

The global success achieved by the XL Oboe inspired us to develop a complete range, including the English Horn, and most recently the Oboe d'Amore. As well as our unique tone hole structure design giving a more focussed sound, and unparalleled intonation and projection, we have also developed the keywork for improved comfort, particularly to the right-hand keys, giving the player greater dexterity. Our new range of XL bocals complement these instruments perfectly.

The lower density Cocobolo gives a warm, rich palette of sound. The lighter colour of the wood displays the beautiful patterns in the grain particularly well.

For additional comfort, Cocobolo-bodied instruments save 10% in weight over the equivalent instrument with an African Blackwood body.
