The Renaissance shawm (forerunner of the modern oboe) is a double reed instrument with a wide conical bore that flares quickly towards the end into a large bell.

These two attributes (wide bore and large bell) give the shawm its characteristic power and tone, making it suitable for outdoor playing and use with large consorts. The strident sound of a shawm carries well in a noisy environment.

Renaissance workshop company produces two sizes of shawms. Their designs are based on originals in the Brussels Conservatoire Collection.

Carefully selected English sycamore is hand turned, bored, reamed, sanded and polished by our own craftsmen.

Our finished Sopranino Shawm has a pirouette for the safe adjustment of the cane reed and overblows at the octave to give a range of a little over one and a half octaves, f' - d''.

The Soprano Shawm has a pirouette fitted onto a brass staple for the safe handling of the cane reed. The Soprano is the most commonly used voice of the shawm family having a playable range of two octaves c' - c'''.

Each instrument is entirely hand built by 'in-house' experienced craftsmen to special order in our own workshops in Toledo (Spain) to the highest standard of craftsmanship. They come with 12 months warranty and 12 months free access to our 'helpline' for advice on setting up, playing and maintenance.
