It has just come back from the shop where it was adjusted so it plays great. The pads are mix of old and new but all are in very good condition. There are no cracks or repairs to the wood or tenons of this instrument. There is little to no player wear on the keys. The grain on this oboe is beautiful and worth noting as well. This is a pro level oboe with all the key work necessary. In addition to all the extra trill keys, it has the split D key, the F resonance key and the left hand F. Please see the photos for exact key work. The bell reads ” Buffet Crampon&Cie A Paris made in France” In addition, there is a lyre over the top of the lettering and a stylized BC below it. Both joints also have the “Buffet Crampon&Cie A Paris” mark. It comes in the original case also in very good used condition although there are some random numbers painted on the top from previous owners. Please see the pictures for more details. This instrument has an open warm sound and the intonation is good throughout the horn. It plays easily up and down the register.
