This fine upper intermediate level oboe was handcrafted in Italy by Patricola. It was made in 2012 and is a one owner instrument. It plays with a dark tone and very good intonation. It plays evenly throughout the octaves with a characteristic American tone.
Brian Charles cleaned, oiled, adjusted, and play-tested this oboe here in our shop and it’s ready to play in every way. This is a great upgrade for an advancing player.
The grenadilla wood body is in excellent condition with no cracks.
The full conservatory, plateau keywork system is in clean, shiny, excellent condition. It has a simple system D key, which makes it a bit easier for players with smaller fingers. We have inserted a cork into the D key hole for even easier playability. The cork is easily removable at home. It has some new pads and excellent condition pads throughout.
This oboe features left hand F, F resonance key, low Bb, Bb resonance key, and both trill keys.
The original hard shell case is in excellent condition.
