This Model is All Wood, full range and full conservatory. It is a high end intermediate instrument that I recommend through the high school level. It includes several alternate keys not found on lower end models and is easier to play than other intermediate model instruments. Extra keys include the left F key and the low Bb. Yamaha instruments are known for their precision and consistency, and this model is no different. It is one of the best intermediate oboe models available and is great to learn the Oboe on for its high quality and simplicity. There is wear on the keywork and wood surface in several areas. It still looks great from an audience perspective. There is a repaired hairline crack in the bell, but this does not affect the playability of the instrument. The logo is faded, but visible in the right light. The case shows a bit of wear, but is still quite functional. Everything is perfectly functional on this instrument and in addition to the Oboe, you will receive a new Oboe reed, swab, and cork grease: everything you need to get started and take good care of your new instrument for years to come. See photos below of the instrument you will be receiving .
