We would like to bring some important information to the attention our customers to help avoid any confusion after a relatively recent development in the oboe business

About 8 years ago, K.GE REEDS made and developed an oboe with the "AW" Logo ("Armstrong Ward" oboe) and subsequently we discontinued the "AW" logo and we changed that same oboe brand name to the K.GE Oboe which is the exact same oboe that we manufacture and market to this day. This oboe is 100% made in our K.GE Shanghai workshop and tuned and tested there.

In the last few years or so, there has been released onto the market a new range of oboes, also made in China, with the "AW" logo brand name. We would like our customers and members of the public to know that this range of oboes has no connection with K.GE Oboes and no part of any these new "AW" brand oboes is made in our workshop. We only manufacture the K.GE brand of oboes in our Shanghai workshop
