I don’t think many people visit the discussion page, so I’m posting this entry on the blog in case anyone is interested in purchasing a Gilbert shaper tip:

Know somebody who wants a Gilbert shaper tip? :)

Well, guys, as cool as hoarding all my oboe supplies is, the truth of the matter is that I really never use this shape. Also, while I may consider myself a young undiscovered phenom on the path to international renown, I can’t deny that a less optimistic title would probably be “financially independent starving artist college student”–i.e. Dirt Poor. So– anyone in the market for a Gilbert tip? I think I might have used it for all of a week or two, a few years ago. I’d like to sell it for $100. It’s as good as new, and also one of the most common shapes (at least over here on the East Coast.) Write me, please! at superlani19 (at) hotmail (dot) com. ~lani~

So there you go. And yes, at this point I’m fine with posting items here, as long as they are oboe related, and are private sales. (I don’t want to start advertising for businesses; I have links a’plenty to businesses and you can visit those pages by clicking on links on the left side of the page. Check out all the Double Reed Sources and you’ll see.)
