CUSTOM LOREE OBOE
F. Loree Grenadilla wood oboe serial # BA 43. This beautiful instrument was completely overhauled professionally in April of this year and is in like-new condition. Most important, the upper joint has never cracked and there are no cracks anywhere else. The wood on this oboe is truly remarkable. Gorgeous wood. Very tight woodgrain. Plays beautifully up and down. Very even scale and great intonation.
In addition, this oboe has been customized. The key corks on most of the metal to metal friction points of the mechanism were removed, a tiny hole was drilled in all these locations, and tiny teflon inserts (the same inserts used at the tip of the adjusting screws) were installed in their place. As a result, the mechanism has a very smooth and fluid feel to it and will stay in adjustment longer since there are no key corks to wear out or fall off. (An oboistís dream come true!) The cost of this custom work alone runs between $ 200.00 and $ 250.00.
Full conservatory mechanism including left hand F lever and F resonance key. Comes with case, reed knife, reed case (3 reeds), purple silk swab, new cork grease, and a new turkey feather. This beautifully restored oboe is reasonably priced at $ 3,399.00.
