This oboe is being sold as-is, no guarantee, no ten day trial. Do not buy this as a playing instrument.
It’s a grenadilla wood Jarde in need of repadding and repair. It has a repaired bell crack but none others that we can see. It is not for use by a player until it has been repaired.
This oboe might be a good playing instrument someday, but it is not presently. It has some new pads and a slightly musty odor.
We just don’t have time to work on this instrument, and want to get it into the hands of an amateur or pro repair person.
