Glotin Staples, Silver 47mm



John Ferrillo made a special trip in October 2017 to the offices of the Glotin company during which he sorted through hundreds of staples. Our customers would do well to know that he uses brass staples just as often as, if not more than our silver staples. Linda Strommen at Indiana University uses exclusively our brass staples as well. Based on the incredibly high standards of these two oboists, you can be assured that our brass staples are excellent.

Over the years, his mandrel, made in the late 60’s by Glotin, has been a good gyroscope: the opening at the top has a lovely elliptical shape – not too round, not too small, not too large.This is needed to create the Goldilocks situation where the tubes are not so large as to cause noise and sharpness, and not so small as to cause choked, flat upper registers. We have them both in silver and brass and they are 47mm in length. When ordering 10 or more staples, we are happy to offer each silver staple for a discounted price of $5.51 (discount will be reflected when updating the quantity in your shopping cart). Please, there is a limit of 20 tubes (silver, brass or a mix) per customer.
