This Italian made LaMarque Wood Oboe with Left Hand F Serial #12884 is in excellent condition. The badge on the bell and top joint says “LaMarque” with a fleur-de-lis on the top and laurel leaves below. It has just come back from the shop where it was gone over, the keys buffed and everything was adjusted so it plays wonderfully. The pads are a mix of old and new with the remaining old pads in good condition. On the back of the top joint, you can see the word “Italy”. There are no cracks, damage, or evidence of repairs to the wood or tenons of this instrument. 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 the exact key work. It comes in the original case which is also in very good used condition. 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.
*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.
