This listing is for a Professional Fox Model Oboe (Model #300) Includes NEW PROTEC CASE. This instrument is a very high quality Oboe. 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. 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.
The bell’s tenon connector has also been repaired in the past. It is a solid repair, and doesn’t affect the playability, but it is there. The overall condition is why we have discounted below where we normally price this model. You may choose to replace the bell or play with it as is.
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. It does make a great visual impression.
