Larilee Wood OboeProfessional Full Conservatory
This auction is for a vintage (possibly 1960s) Larilee wood oboe with original
case and metal joint protector. This is the professional model with the full conservatory key system.
The serial number on the instrument is
9083 and is engraved on both the upper and lower joints. The oboe was recently overhauled. All pads are ''cork pads'' with the exception of the bell key and 2 on the lower joint.
Being a vintage wood instrument that has been played for many years, the instrument does have some wear. There is a crack at the top of the upper joint (see picture). This is common on wood oboes. The crack has been previously (prior to the overhaul) repaired and professional banded. With good care this crack will not open up. There is also a minor crack (see picture) that has been previously repaired on the bell. The keys are silver plated and the plating has pitted over the years. This does not affect the playability of the instrument or the sound of the oboe. I have included multiple pictures of the instrument and can provide more upon request.
I am a teacher and also work at a
music store. I had been playing on this oboe until recently when I
purchased a newer instrument. Please feel free to contact me with any
Sorry, no returns
