Both the bassoon and oboe produce sound when the musician blows air into the double reed, causing vibrations that resonate inside the tubing. Each instrument has a specific sound and range. The bassoon is able to play in a very low register, with the lowest sound out of the woodwind family of instruments except for the larger contrabassoon . The oboe is able to play higher notes and its sound has been compared to that of a duck, with a very clear tone that is easy to distinguish among the other instruments in the orchestra . Both instruments are noted for their expressiveness.
