The ECONOMICS of
gouging tube cane
should be considered
when buying cane products long-term or
quantities. 1 (one) lb of Alliaud oboe tube cane will
produce about 250 to 300
pieces of gouged cane. That's more or less
.25¢ each compared to $
1.75 each when purchasing gouged cane
or even more when purchased from other dealers.
The savings from gouging
your own cane would pay for the combination
cane splitter, oboe push style pre-gouger,
gouging machine with
guillotine and analog dial depth indicator
after approximately 900 pieces. At approximately 300 pieces
per year the equipment would have paid for itself in 3 years.

folding. One machine will accept oboe, English
Horn or oboe d'amore shaperforms
(only one shaperform is provided with the
