This instrument is certified by Charles Double Reed Company to be in top condition



SKU: IUO928 Category:


This Howarth S50C +3 pro oboe was made in 1995. It has an exceptional, dark robust tone, in part due to the classic slightly thicker walled construction. It has been a one-owner oboe since new.

Brian Charles cleaned, oiled, adjusted, and play-tested this oboe here in our shop and it’s ready to play. This is a great instrument for a first-chair player or soloist.

The full grenadilla wood body is in excellent condition. There was an extremely small professionally repaired crack in the top joint (we can’t find it) and a small professionally repaired bell crack.

This oboe features the optional bore liner in the upper section of the upper joint to greatly reduce the risk of cracking. They refer to this as a “Velvet Throat”.

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 3rd octave key, adjustable thumb rest, left hand F, F resonance key, low Bb, Bb resonance key, banana key, and both trill keys.

The original hard shell case is in very good condition with minor exterior edge wear and a small worn area near the handle.
