Question
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,
Wayne

Answer
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
Geoffrey.
