"Josef is the alchemist of the oboe, creating gold from wood, metal and plastic. The consistency of tone and pitch through all registers, superb response and flexibility is unmatched. No longer limited by my equipment, I can create the music I imagine uninhibitedly. There simply is no equivalent."

Jan Eberle

Former Principal Oboe, Lansing, Jackson, Saginaw, and Chautauqua Symphonies
Professor Emeritus, Michigan State University

"My Josef oboe has brought the joy of playing back into my life! I can't put it down!"

Katherine Janssen

Principal Oboe, Prairie Wind Ensemble, East Peoria, IL

"After trying oboes at several IDRS conferences I kept coming back to the Josef. The evenness of pitch and tone quality were unmatched. I love the responsiveness in the upper and lower registers. It's fun to play!"

Cynthia Green Libby

Principal Oboe, Springfield (MO) Symphony
Professor of Oboe, Missouri State University

"On a whim I found my Josef Pegaso at the 2010 IDRS Conference. This may sound dramatic, but it has honestly given me a whole new lease on oboe playing. It is easier to play, lighter to hold, more ergonomic on my hands, easier to make reeds for, and absolutely more consistent, especially in the low register."

Heather Peyton

Assistant Professor, University of Northern Iowa
Gillet-Fox 2009 International Oboe Competition Finalist

"Lush and liquid are the two words I would use to describe Josef oboes. Not only are the instruments visually beautiful, but their rich tone and fluid key work make them a joy to play. And, with so many high quality models to choose from, it's easy to find the perfect fit!"
