In 1964, Ben Storch created this dark, elegant sounding German Gordet. It has the dark tone one would expect and a nice array of upper partials, giving it a bright, singing tone. It has not been regularly played in quite a while, and needs to be broken in, and enjoyed.
Brian Charles just added some new pads, cleaned, oiled, adjusted, and play-tested this oboe here in our shop. It’s ready to play in every way. This will be a fine oboe for an adult enthusiast, high schooler looking to upgrade, or pro doubler.
The grenadilla wood body is in excellent condition with no cracks.
The full conservatory, full plateau silver plated keywork system is in clean, shiny, excellent condition. It has just been cleaned and oiled.
This oboe features left hand F, F resonance key, split D, low Bb, banana key, and both trill keys.
The original, classic hard shell case and fitted Naugahyde cover are in excellent condition.
