They are a long established (East) German company, now merged with Adler, who are now known mainly for their bassoons. They do still make instruments of the oboe family & German system clarinets. www.moennig-adler.de

No - I've never played one. The only ones I've seen have fully automatic octaves which are devils to regulate & they do restrict alternative fingerings in the top ranges.

I had a copy of the Eastern oboe Moennig. when I was in a music college in the USSR, he was considered an unaffordable luxury.Luchshe it was considered only Sonora.Even the Bolshoi in the 70 years of buying oboes and English horns "Sonora".rue for long. Then they thought better of it and began to buy Rigoutat.their mutual love, incidentally, is still ongoing
I say that the oboes Moennig quality is dramatically improved. I've tried English horn "Diamond" this company in a store company "Howarth", which is in London on Chiltern Street. At a price comparable to the price of the tnglish horns of French firms, the sound of the instrument and remained at best a "German" (dark, not very specific tone), but for me, so "tone from the GDR"
