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
  • HOWARTH S20c – as above but a little newer – £1700
  • 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 – S O L D
  • 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
