I have two magnificent Laubin rosewood oboes for sale.
The first is a 2003 New/Old Stock oboe. It had never been played prior to my purchase and looks and plays like a brand new oboe. It has only been played for testing since I bought it. When I brought it to Paul for tweaking and appraisal, he was struck by its truly pristine condition, and corroborated my assessment of its history. He was also saddened that it simply had not been played. It has a beautiful brown hue with traditional rosewood patterns. It has the darker tone of the two oboes. It will need a full break-in period. I am offering for $12,500. This is Laubin’s appraised value for one that was fully and consistently played since initial sale, so this is a great deal. It comes with your choice of traditional Cavallero case cover or a Coach designer laptop/carrying case cross-over.
The second oboe is a 1992 rosewood that came to me in similar condition in January. I have been paying it lightly during these months so that it is broken in. It has great response and a sweet, warm tone. It has a beautiful red hue. It is being offered at $9500 with a choice of a traditional Cavallero case cover or a Coach designer laptop/carrying case cross-over.
Trials are available.
