Price : US $686.77
I have an A. Robert (Paris) oboe for sale. I am not sure of the age but I know they stopped making them around 1925. They were Loree's main competition at that time. It is in excellent condition - grenadilla wood - There was a crack in the upper joint but it has been repaired and does not affect play. This is a full conservatory system (lacking only the low Bb resonance key and the third octave key which were not made at that time). It plays very well and has a darker german tone rather than the brighter french tone. This instrument is in excellent condition. There is very little wear on the keys. It comes with a brand new Gator case. No accessories as I'd like to keep them in case I play again. I'm selling because I have hospital bills that need to be paid. The cork (tenon) covers are not for this instrument. I actually went to Ace hardware and bought some pieces that fit (close) to keep the case from getting grimy with cork grease. This would make a great step up instrument for an intermediate student. It does have a slight leak in the a-flat key and may need a new pad on the e-flat key. It can be repaired for probably less than $20 (if you can fix them yourselves). Email for more pictures if you'd like. Estimate of this instrument was given to me at $1400.
