Hello and Welcome to

Covey & Ramsay,

oboe makers! 

Our shop is located 2 hours north of Atlanta, in Blairsville, GA. 

Shop Hours 2012:

We are usually in the shop M-F from about 10:00 a.m. to about 6:00 p.m.  If we're back in the oboe machine room, we sometimes can't get to the phone, so please try again later.  Shawna Lake, at OboeChicago (our dealer), 847-815-9644, can answer many questions you may have.

 Our e-mail address, which is the best way to contact us, is below:


All visits are by appointment only.  If you'd like to visit, please e-mail us first and we will arrange for a mutually convenient time.

We are currently finishing and delivering new Covey oboes, both Grenadilla wood and Rosewood, and have more in the "pipeline" for the rest of the year!  If you are interested in trying a new Covey, please call Shawna and make arrangements!

A little history:   For those of our friends who remember Paul and his Covey oboes from his Baltimore days, he moved to Atlanta in October, 1996.  There we had a small but wonderful shop on Bennett Street, for 10+ years, nestled in between the art galleries, rug dealers, antique shops and restaurants... but now Covey & Ramsay is making Covey oboes in Blairsville, 1 block from the central town square.  From our windows, we see the lovely historic courthouse, with an old-fashioned traffic circle around it.  There are festivals here all Fall: Blue Grass Festival, Sorghum Festival (sorghum is a local cane syrup which is very delicious!), there's a Country Fair, the Campbell Folk Arts School has a festival near here, etc.  We're walking distance from most of the downtown area, and we can promise you about the best Reuben sandwich we're ever had only one block away...  But most importantly, this is a quiet area where we can focus on our work....



Our primary focus is:


Oboe Making

Our goal and commitment is to make and deliver to our potential Covey oboists the most beautiful oboe possible. 



Support for our clients

Whether that means first-rate repair or fine-tuning your oboe, our commitment is to offer you our best support!


In Loving Memory Of

Paul Marshall Covey

March 14, 1947 - January 8, 2008
