Our goal at Magic Reed is to offer the oboe community best in category instruments at prices that are typically at or below cottage industry standards. We are very particular about the brands that we carry, and only buy oboes we would be happy to keep ourselves or offer our students. We look for the optimal intersection of quality, age, condition and price for best value. We buy, rather than consign, and believe in the oboes we carry.
LAUBIN 2108, (1995) by Paul Laubin. This is an exceptional oboe with a big sound, is in pristine condition, and was made at a time when Laubin turned out some of their best oboes. This oboe had one semi-professional owner who played it moderately until it was replaced with a new one 5 years ago. Professional case with Cavallero case cover, reed case, silk swab and three reeds. Call for pricing.
