Description: Oboe - Barely Used Loree oboe, full Grenadilla conservatory
Barely used full conservatory Loree oboe. Full grenadilla wood body, ak bore, serial: OK87. Excellent condition.
Keys, pads, corks and springs all in great working order. The keys are silver, and they're starting to turn a bit around some of the hinges, but it's just aesthetics. There are no cracks in the body.
Accessories include a padded canvase case cover with pocket and shoulder strap, drying spray, rubber thumb rest cover, Loree brand hard case, cleaning cloth, wood cork grease pot, leather reed case and screw driver.
I purchased this Loree in 2002 in my last year of high school, left for college and rarely played it since. The instrument probably has no more than about 30 hours of playing time, and has always been stored in controlled temperature and humidity.
I've recently taken a job in banking and have had to admit to myself that I won't be picking the oboe back up. I paid about $5,000 for the instrument, and an AK bore full conservatory, full grenadilla body Loree now retails for about $6,100.
I live in Charlotte, NC, and I'm happy to let interested buyers test out the instrument. I can also email you more detailed pictures than this site allows me to post.
I'll ship via the method of your choice if you pay for it. Can pay by Paypal, or happy to discuss other methods of payment.
