Oboe is a double reed woodwind instrument, usually made of wood. The most common Oboe plays in the Treble or Sorpano range. It has metal keys and conical bore and a flared bell. When blown into the reed at a sufficient air pressure, the air column vibrates and sound is produced in an Oboe. One who plays Oboe is known as Oboist.
Oboe is commonly used as orchestral or solo instrument in classical music, film music, folk music and other types. It uses a double reed consisting of two thin blades of cane tied together and has an extremely narrow conical bore.
