This one owner, pro level oboe is in immaculate condition. It plays with great focus of tone, and rich flexibility in the upper octaves. The lower registers are responsive and in tune.
This instrument was made in July of 2002. It is the precursor to the current pro level “S” model with the addition of mother of pearl touch points throughout. Even the cork grease cup is finished with mother of pearl! This will make a first chair, advanced oboist very happy. It will be an excellent lifetime oboe for an up and coming player as well.
The grenadilla wood body is in near mint condition with no cracks.
The full conservatory, full plateau rhodium plated silver keywork system is in clean, shiny, near mint condition. The pads and bumpers are all in excellent condition. This oboe needs nothing.
This oboe features third octave key, left hand F, F resonance key, low Bb, Bb resonance key, banana (Gillet) key, and both trill keys.
The original Fossati lozenge style hard shell case and shearling lined, fitted Fossati cover are in excellent condition.
