Tom Sparkes are the only woodwind instrument manufacturer in Australia. We build a full range of oboes, from the TS200D machined plastic oboe, up to the TS5000M professional instrument with gold plated keywork. We use a variety of woods from Australia and the rest of the world, and work closely with clients when building our bespoke oboes.
Tom Sparkes oboes feature many innovations which are now being copied by other manufacturers, such as our maintenance-reducing polycarbonate adjusting screws, and pivot screw- free design.
All Tom Sparkes oboes feature a right hand trill key, low Bb key, long F key and 3rd octave key. Professional models add a split low D key and G# curl key.
