This listing is for a Professional Fox Model Oboe (Model #300) in excellent condition, made in 1984. Includes NEW PROTEC CASE. This instrument is a very high quality Oboe and was well taken care of. Foxes are widely regarded as one of the absolute best brands for double-reed instruments. This instrument is Full Conservatory and is the professional resonite composite oboe that Fox makes. The resin body is much easier to maintain than a wooden instrument with little risk of cracking. The keys are silver plated and look great! Photos below are of the instrument you will be receiving. This instrument retails for nearly $5,600, take advantage of this great opportunity to own one at a fraction of the cost. There is no better resin oboe available on the market.
This is a true professional instrument. Unlike other fox renard models, this instrument is all handmade and hand-bored, giving it a superior response and intonation profile. It is in great playing condition. Cosmetically, it does have some issues. There are some scratches on instrument body. Silver plating on the keys is shiny in spots, but has a lot of plating wear throughout the keywork. From an audience perspective it looks fine. The bell tenon connector has also been repaired in the past. It is a solid repair, and doesn’t touch the bore or affect the playability, but it is there. The overall condition is why we have discounted $500 below where we normally price this model. It does make a great visual impression. Also included is a New Protec MAX case pictured. In addition to the Oboe, you will receive a new reed, swab, and tube of cork grease: everything you need to get started and take good care of your new instrument for years to come. Note this instrument has the Fox Renard professional logo on it, which indicates it is a Fox 300.
