This classic Loree comes from the 1972 “Golden Era” which is sought after for its gorgeous tone, projection, and stability. It plays evenly throughout the octaves with an especially rich and resonant lower register.
Brian Charles just overhauled this oboe. It has new pads, new cork and felt bumpers, and some new springs. It was fully disassembled, ultrasonically cleaned, hand polished, oiled, adjusted, and fully play-tested.
The grenadilla wood body is in very good condition with the usual signs of use. There is a professionally repaired top joint crack with one pin from quite some time ago. See the close-up photo.
The full conservatory, full plateau silver plated keywork system is in clean, shiny, excellent condition with the usual amount of wear, but no faults.
This oboe features left-hand F, F resonance key, low Bb, Bb resonance key, banana key, and both trill keys.
The ProPac case with shoulder strap in deep blue is brand new.
