Used Oboes:

(Pictures and more information available if you can click on the title)

  • B&H ’78’ – plastic bodied starter oboe. Covered plate so suitable for younger players. Cosmetically a little untidy, but plays as it should – £500
  • BUNDY – made by the Selmer Company in the USA and similar to the B&H ’78’. Plays very easily and in lovely condition – £600
  • BUFFET – This is their 4121 model in very good condition. Buffets are an ideal starter instrument that will take a player to grade 5 or 6 and have the advantage of small ‘vent’ holes, in the centre of the finger-plates of the left hand, preparing students for their next, more advanced, oboe – £600
  • HOWARTH ‘B’ MODEL – So many players started on one of these. This wooden bodied, silver plated oboe, made by Orsi of Milan for Howarth of London, is in pristine condition. Will easily take a player through their grades up to grade 5 or 6. – £650
  • WARD & WINTERBOURNE TW1a – A lovely wooden-bodied, London made, covered-plate, entry level oboe in very good condition – £650
  • NOBLET Wooden, French, intermediate oboe in good playing order – £800
  • LARILEE – Nice wooden intermediate oboe. USA made instrument of good quality and sound. Semi-automatic octaves and both trills. A more affordable alternative to the S20 – £900
  • FOSSATI This lovely, wooden,  dual system intermediate level oboe, offers a lot of extra mechanism and excellent acoustics – for a French made instrument, they are not that common in the UK, but should be – S O L D
  • HOWARTH S20c – This is the conservatoire model with added thumb-plate which prepares students for when they progress to a professional system. Quite an early one, but having just been serviced will be a very fine instrument for the intermediate player – £1600
  • BUFFET ACADEMY A lovely full Gillet ‘graduate’ model in excellent order – £2000
  • CABART A74 – Loree’s ‘graduate’ model, superb for the advanced player – £2300
  • HOWARTH S5 – This S5 is the version that ran along side the start of the production of the XL. It has clearly been used a lot (always a good sign of a nice instrument) and I have recently given it a very thorough service and have had the silver plating renewed on many pieces of keywork – £2800
