Parts of the oboe and parts of the oboe reed.
The oboe is a fantastic instrument for many reasons. In fact we have an article in which our readers tell us what they love the most about the oboe: https://medinareeds.es/2019/10/01/reasons-love-the-oboe/
Parts of the oboe:
1. The oboe reed: for us the most important. The oboe reed is a thin strip of wood that vibrates to produce sound.
2. The upper body of the instrument: where the oboe reed is inserted. Here the oboist will place his left hand.
3. The lower body: where the oboist places the right hand.
4. The pavilion or bell: the widened extension of the lower body.
