Description: Oboe - Patricola SC-1 Oboe + Extras; played <6 mo., LIKE NEW condn
This is a semi-professional oboe, made of select Grenadilla Ebony wood that was aged under controlled conditions for 11 to 13 years prior to the instrument's construction. All of the mechanics of the instrument are handcrafted and silver-plated. NOTE, please that there is NO trace of tarnish or wear of any kind on any portion of the oboe's mechanical components. This beautiful instrument has the French, half-automatic key system, which includes the following features:
double F key (left hand F)
double low C key.
fork F resonance key,
C to Eb
Low C to C#
Low B to C#
Ab to Bb.
The original black, hard-shell, fabric-covered case is clean and in mint condition except for a bit of wear that shows on one of the bottom corners.
In addition to the oboe, this sale includes: Several pieces of high quality, unfinished reed; a half- dozen unused, top quality #4 reeds that I purchased (at around $13 each) and never used. The reeds have been kept in a protective case, and should be in ready-to-play condition.
I have never had any problems at all with this instrument. I love the mechanics of it, and believe it has fabulous tone quality for an intermediate model. I am selling it only because as a composition/piano major, I no longer have time to play in ensembles or even practice oboe.
I will happily supply the purchaser with the original sales receipt for this instrument (from International Musical Instrument Suppliers, located near Chicago).
Please email me if you are interested.
asking price is: $2200.
