"Last weekend I had the pleasure of trying out the latest model of your oboe "Classic" with gold plated keys, and I was very impressed by the quality and the development of your instrument compared to the last time I had tried it. Congratulations! The sound is beautiful and I think very suitable for the European market, and I found the intonation stable and even. I had some reservations with the low F, perhaps due to that the key didn't open sufficiently. But overall a very impressive result. Congratulations again!"
