Driscoll Opus1 Oboe Gouging Machine
Retails for $950, a $355 savings! This machine is from 2006 and is in great condition. The blade is sharp and it is in perfect adjustment, set up to gouge .60 in the center and .45 on the sides. The highlight of this machine is that it is built to allow the center thickness and the side thickness to be controlled by just one screw each. The machine has these screws clearly labeled, with engraved instructions and arrows pointing which way to turn the screws to thicken or reduce the gouge. It gives the reedmaker excellent control over the finest proportions of his cane, should he wish to alter the gouge in any way. I have found the gouge to produce consistent reeds with a vibrant feel and deep, smooth tone.
