Oboe/Buffet Oboe


Hello, I have a Buffet Oboe with a serial number of 20010. I cant find any website where I can enter this number and determine the model and age. Can you assist?

Thank you,

Dear Wayne
It is hard to identify your Buffet oboe from the serial number. With a number in the 20,000s it doesn't seem to be a professional model so the Buffet website will not be a help.
Please send me picture if you can  to my website email : geoffrey@geoffreybridgeoboe.com
I will have a go at putting a date on it when I see which model it is.
Best wishes
