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. This instrument has seen very little use since production. I found a few minor scratches on the instrument, so while it isn’t in perfect condition, but you won’t get an instrument in better condition without buying new. 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. The keys are silver plated and look great. This particular instrument has very little wear anywhere on the instrument. There are some minor scratches on the instrument body, bell and keywork, but the silver plating on the keys really shine. The logo is clear. The case shows a bit of wear, more so than the instrument, but is still in great shape. 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 .
