These are reedless pipes of =3D somewhat narrow scale, having the languids angle down sharply to the =3D rear of the pipe. They have wooden roller beards and the top 1/3 of the = =3D pipe is slightly tapered. The tonal quality is rather string-like and = =3D really not an oboe tone. I had read some information on these pipes but = =3D cannot remember where. Which makes me wonder if I could indeed label the = =3D stop knob a "string" without incurring the wrath of the stop-knob =3D police.   ------=3D_NextPart_000_0009_01C2B435.1FA88780 Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <HTML><HEAD> <META http-equiv=3D3DContent-Type content=3D3D"text/html; =3D charset=3D3Diso-8859-1"> <META content=3D3D"MSHTML 6.00.2719.2200" name=3D3DGENERATOR> <STYLE></STYLE> </HEAD> <BODY bgColor=3D3D#ffffff> <DIV><FONT face=3D3DArial size=3D3D2>I have a rank of Estey Labial Oboe = =3D pipes.&nbsp;=3D20 These are reedless pipes of somewhat narrow scale, having the =3D languids&nbsp;=3D20 angle down sharply to the rear of the pipe.&nbsp; They have wooden =3D roller beards=3D20 and the top 1/3 of the pipe is slightly tapered.&nbsp; The tonal quality = =3D is=3D20 rather string-like&nbsp; and really not an oboe tone.
