Question
I have an older oboe that I would like to find out something about it, and value.  The bell has Selmer on it and the serial number is F5447.  I have not had any luck in finding anything about it.  Thanks in advance.
Pam

Answer
Dear Pam

Before I can tell you anything about your oboe I need to see it please.
There are so many models and the serial number tells me nothing!
Could you send me some pictures to my website email address which is

geoffrey@geoffreybridgeoboe.com

I'll get back to asap after I have a look around.

Best wishes
