Oboe/Oboe Value

Question
We have a Patricola Intermediate Oboe that we purchased new for my daughter who played in the band/orchestra in 2001 during Middle school and high school.  We are planniong to sell it and wondered how much it might be worth?  

Thank you!

Answer
Dear Carol

Please let me have a couple of photos of the oboe if you can. Send them to:

geoffrey@geoffreybridgeoboe.com

I can have a better idea of the model and general "look" of the instrument if I see it. If that isn't possible I'll have stab at valuation but I need a model number if you have that.

Best wishes

Geoffrey
