This AK model Loree oboe was made in 1986. It has a dense and dark tone with easy playability throughout the octaves.
Brian Charles extensively cleaned, oiled, adjusted, and play-tested this oboe here in our shop and it’s ready to play. This is a perfect upgrade to take someone into college or community orchestra.
The grenadilla wood body is in excellent condition. The “AK” designation indicates that this oboe was produced by Loree with a slightly altered inner bore design intended to create a somewhat sweeter overall tone. There was a small crack at the top of the mid joint and at the top of the bell which were professionally repaired.
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 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 a torn area of the inner lining.
