Oboe – Selmer – Great Condition – $800

Oboe for sale. Hard case included. Used by student for a few years, who is no longer in band. Paid $1,000 for this name-brand, quality instrument, and would like it to continue being used by someone interested.

If you have a student who will be starting to play this summer or fall, this instrument will be great for them.

Only serious offers please.

Cash only.

I just love the “name-brand” bit: yes, it has a brand. Yes, that brand has a name. “Quality” though? Um. Doubtful.

Oh … and yes, that brand name is known to be awful.

But hey, it’s only $800.

You get what you pay for. I try very hard to get parents and students to understand that. It’s not always easy.

(Side note: the image shows the top joint placed UPSIDE DOWN in the case. Hah!)
