Topic: Bulgheroni Opera Model Oboe? Where to get?
I currently have a Bulgheroni MUSA oboe in Cocobola from a double reed dealer. It is a little out of my price range. However, I am interested in trying the Opera Model in Grenadilla. Problem is, the only place that supposedly is the American Dealer says they won't have any for quite a while (???). The only other place available is Woodwind/Brasswind. They have a trial policy but it is horrible.....i won't go into details.
I have contacted Bulgheroni in Italy -- they say contact the dealer in the US, with whom I am dealing right now. He only carries MUSA models.
Anyone have any suggestions on where to get a couple Opera Models for trial? I am at a loss here! Very frustrating. They are such great horns.....
