This Cabart oboe was made in 1983 by Loree and plays with grace and color. The “74” marking on the instrument indicates that it was made after the Cabart company was purchased by Loree. All Cabarts after 1974 were manufactured by Loree.
The grenadilla wood body is in excellent condition with one small professionally repaired crack on the bell. The bell crack is minor, and appears to have been repaired a good while ago.
