This Platz Modified Wood Oboe Serial #P346 is in great condition. It has just come back from the shop where most of the pads were replaced and the keys were adjusted so it plays great. It has been professionally pinned about an inch down from the reed receiver and all the keys are in very good condition with little to no player wear. The bell reads “Platz Elkhart Indiana” and the serial number is P346. This is a modified oboe so while it doesn’t have all extra trill keys or left hand F key of a conservatory oboe, it does have the split D key and the F resonance key. Please see the photos for exact key work. It comes in the original case also in very good used condition. This instrument has an open, yet mellow sound and the intonation is good throughout the horn. It plays easily up and down the register.
*Note: If the serial number begins with “isi” this means we were unable to locate or read the original serial number and therefore it was assigned an automatically generated serial number from our system.
