Used Oboes:

(Please contact me if you would like any pictures of the oboes)

  • 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
  • HOWARTH ‘B’ MODEL – So many players started on one of these. This wooden bodied, silver plated oboe, is one of the most recent made by Orsi of Milan for Howarth of London, and is in near 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 – £900
  • KREUL – a beautiful example of their thumbplate, open-hole model. Kreuls were famous for their sound quality and ‘extra’ mechanism as standard eg left hand C#. This one has got it all. Still used by some top players in major orchestras, this 1970’s/80’s oboe will make someone very happy at £1000
  • Ward & WINTERBOURNE TW3a – Similar system to the Howarth S20, this English made oboe is excellent. Plays very freely. – £1200
  • 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 – £1300
  • 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 – A lovely conservatoire Gillet model in very good order – £1800
  •                                                                  Or with added thumbplate – £2000
