The inventory of instruments changes almost on a daily basis. contact us for availability. We cannot put prices here due to objections from manufacturers. However, our prices are very competitive and we can give them to you by internet or a phone call.


We always have many new Loree instruments!  new Royal oboes in Grenadilla and Kingwood as well as regular AK (non-Royal) oboes also in Kingwood or Grenadilla. We have new Loree English horns regular and Royal Models. Our inventory of new Loree instruments changes almost on a daily basis so contact us for availabilities and price. 


We have the new Howarth XL oboes which is their top of the line instrument. Of course, it's full conservatory including the 3rd octave. This instrument id gaining popularity among several major U.S. players.


 We offer  the new Yamaha 841-T "Duet Model" oboes in Grenadilla and Kingwood (also called Violet wood) with its mellower sound. They now have liners in the top joint to avoid cracking. These are very free playing, particularly in the lower register! They have the 3rd octave and Philadelphia high D keys, which make slurring to the high D much easier! These oboes respond very easily particularly below the staff and, in fact, we sold several to  2nd oboists (in Kingwood) in  major US orchestras who have referred to it as a "life saver" for its ease in the low register at  a very attractive price.


     We are a Fox dealer and can order any of their instruments by special order and can offer them at very favorable prices.
