A double reed woodwind instrument played in treble clef and pitched in C. A musician who plays the oboe is called an oboist. It resembles the clarinet in terms of outward appearance. In comparison to other woodwind instruments, the oboe has a clear and penetrating voice. The oboe is said to be the instrument that most resembles the human singing voice due to the nature of double reeds and their similarity to the human vocal bands (Ligamenta vocalia). It is beautiful when played by good player; duck-like when played by a mediocre player. Considered one of the hardest instruments in the world.
That n00b oboe player sounds like a duck on crack.
