This fine upper intermediate level oboe was handcrafted on the Swiss – Italian border by the family owned Bulgheroni company. It was made in 1988 and has been a one owner oboe since the 1990’s. It plays with a sweet dark tone and very good intonation. It plays evenly throughout the octaves with an especially rich and resonant lower register.
We just cleaned, oiled, adjusted, and play tested this oboe here in our shop and it’s ready to play in every way. This is a perfect upgrade to take someone into college or community orchestra.
The grenadilla wood body is in excellent condition. There was an extremely small crack on the top exterior of the middle joint. It was professionally repaired (and is very hard to even locate).
The full conservatory, full plateau silver plated keywork system is in clean, shiny, excellent condition. It has some new pads and excellent condition pads throughout.
This oboe features left hand F, F resonance key, low Bb, Bb resonance key, banana key, and both trill keys.
The original hard shell case is in excellent condition with small dents and bumps on the exterior as would be expected.
