Does an oboe with a Kingwood body sound different from an an oboe with a Grenadilla body?

Last Update: 09/03/2010

A Kingwood body has a soft tone and can be played in good harmony with other wind and string instruments. The comfortable and cozy tone suits chamber music. In contrast, a Grenadilla body provides excellent projection and suits performance in a big concert hall.
