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

  • B&H ’78’ – plastic bodied starter oboe imported from America by Boosey & Hawkes. Covered plate so suitable for younger players. Cosmetically a little untidy, but plays as it should – S O L D
  • BUNDY – made by the Selmer Company in the USA. Plastic bodied with silver plated keys. Covered hole, thumb-plate system. 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
  • WARD & WINTERBOURNE TW3 – a very fine example of their best selling ring system model, aimed at the intermediate player – £800
  • NOBLET Wooden, French, intermediate oboe in good playing order – £800
  • WARD & WINTERBOURNE TW3a – this is their covered-plate intermediate model (very similar to the Howarth S20) aimed at taking students through to grade eight. This one is in excellent condition and plays with a good even tone throughout the range. – £1200
  • WARD & WINTERBOURNE TW5 – one of their less common ‘full Gillet’ professional models. There is some wear on the silver-plate, however this is a lovely oboe at a very realistic price – £1800
  • BUFFET ACADEMY A lovely full Gillet ‘graduate’ model in excellent order – £2000
  • CABART A74 – Loree’s ‘graduate’ model, superb for the advanced player – S O L D
  • HOWARTH S40c – The true ‘graduate’ version of the S40 (with undercut tone-holes and metal socket liners). This has recently been serviced by me and is in lovely condition – £2500
  • MARIGAUX 901 – Perhaps the best selling professional oboe ever. This one is dated from the late ’80s a time regarded by many as Marigaux’s ‘golden period’. I have been looking after this oboe for around 30 years and it plays beautifully. A few years ago many of the finger-plates were re-silvered, and now a few other pieces of key-work are showing signs of wear. Non of this affects the way that it plays or feels in the hands, which is superb! – £2750
  • RIGOUTAT CLASSIQUE – A very lovely original oboe as used by many of the finest soloists in the world. Although about 35 years old, this has been used with care and regularly maintained. It is in beautiful condition and a very fine example of this model. – £2800
