This Italian-made LaMarque wood oboe with left-hand F is in excellent condition. It has just come back from the ship where it was gone over, the keys buffed, and everything was adjusted so it plays wonderfully. There are no cracks, damage, or evidence of repairs to the wood or tenons of this oboe. The serial number is “12884”. The engraving on the bell and the top joint says “LaMarque” with a fleur-de-lis on the top and laurel leaves below. On the back of the top joint and at the bottom of the bottom joint the word “Italy” is engraved. This is a professional oboe with all of the extra trill keys, the split D key, the F resonance key and the left-hand F key. Please see the photos for the exact key work. It comes in the original case which is in good used condition. No accessories are included. This instrument has a nice open warm mellow sound and the intonation is good throughout the horn and plays easily up and down the register.
