I just read this online:
[Name deleted, starts with S and ends with R] Oboe with case, reeds, book, everything you need. – $385
Nice [Name deleted, starts with S and ends with R] Student Oboe
Rarely used (and I mean that) oboe is perfect for any student. Plays to a low B. Model 52221… selling on [Name deleted, starts with S and ends with R] site as model 1492B. It’s in great condition, serviced at [store name removed … why would they bother with the instrument, I wonder?] Music in [a city in Wisconsin]. All the keys work and the pads are in good condition. Comes with everything a student oboe player would need:
Two (2) reeds
Large and small cleaning swabs
Essential Elements Oboe book with CD and DVD
Don’t rent when you can own for less then one year rental fees.
My advice: Don’t buy when you aren’t getting a decent instrument!
