Consignment sale. The owner purchased it used in 1968 from her teacher in the Lyric Opera.
This oboe was appraised at $1800, but the seller is willing to negotiate on the price, especially in the case of financial hardship. You will be able to buy this instrument below the listed price.
Our goal is to place this oboe in a good home and at a price that both helps the student and reflects the value of the instrument. We think a talented 10-12 year old could benefit from playing this instrument.
We have personally restored this instrument to put it into playing condition.
--There are previously-repaired cracks in the upper joint and bell. These detract from the resale value even if they are not affecting how the oboe is playing.
--The wood of the top joint is slightly bowed. Not enough that the sound/tuning of the instrument is substantially affected, but enough that anyone who looks into the bore or the outside of the top joint will see that it is warped (as can be expected of an instrument of this age).
--Key system includes Left-F, split D, articulated C#. No 3rd octave.
PLEASE CONTACT US TO ARRANGE FOR A TRIAL:
--You may try the instrument before buying
--You will be billed for the shipping (and you will be responsible for return shipping if you choose not to purchase the instrument)
--We will either request a security deposit or keep your payment information on file during the trial period
Regular office hours are not observed, but services are available both in-person by appointment and via shipping for out-of-state clients.
