I love this passage:
“There is something that strikes a chord deep in your body when you play a Laubin,” said Sherry Sylar, the associate principal oboist of the New York Philharmonic. “It’s a resonance that doesn’t happen with any other oboe. It rings inside your body. You get addicted to making that kind of a sound and nothing else will do.”

Oh, his son didn't learn the complete process from him?  That's a shame.  I remember watching and reading a few news stories about Laubin over the years and was really fascinated.
Edit: didn't he have an apprentice or assistant as well?
