Scrape: European WShape: Medium (M3)Gouge: Medium
The Ostrava oboe recane is based on the European W-scrape (which itself is a modified and less extreme version of the American W-scrape). It has a slightly longer scrape than a standard U-scrape oboe recane and a more pronounced spine with thinner "windows" either side of the spine, and a longer tip than the U-scrape. This gives a more free-blowing oboe recane than a U-scrape, but some players find it too free, with a greater tendency to wilder tuning or "wallowing" (where pitch may drop when playing louder). However many other players love it.
The medium width shape and medium gouge thickness of the Ostrava give a medium brilliance with a medium responsiveness.
Overall these features combine to create a responsive oboe recane with a fairly broad tone and medium-brilliance.
