This Rigoutat Model 901 was made in 2003. The tone is dark and rich and very centered.
We just cleaned, oiled, adjusted, and play tested this oboe. We replaced both tenon corks, a number of top joint pads, many bumpers and it’s ready to play in every way.
The grenadilla wood body is in excellent condition.
The full conservatory, full plateau keywork system is in good condition. There is light pitting and some silver plate wear at touch points.
This oboe features left hand F, F resonance key, low Bb, Bb resonance key, both trill keys, split D, banana key. It has a low B bridge resonance key.
The hard shell case and fitted cover are in mint condition.
