Oboe/Oboe value


Buffet & Crampon Oboe
Buffet & Crampon Oboe  
Hi there, I have a Buffet & Crampon oboe sitting unused from my teenage years. It is in lovely condition and has the serial number 13731 on both main sections. Just wondering if you would know a price I would be able to sell it for?

        Many thanks

Amber, your oboe is lovely! It's a beginner model without the left hand F; but it does have the low Bb.
If the oboe is in excellent condition; used it's worth under $1000.00. You might try Craig's list or Ebay.

Hope this is helpful. Thanks, hannah
