Our goal at Magic Reed is to offer the oboe community best in category used instruments at prices that are typically below those found within our cottage industry.  We buy oboes rather than have them consigned to us.  In doing so, we can be more selective and only offer our customers what 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.   Well cared for oboes have a longer life than you would think, and are already depreciated, making them an excellent investment.  All current oboes have been serviced by our expert repairperson, Heidi Wolfgang.  Trial period are available.   If you are interested in learning more about our featured oboes, please use our contact page to reach us by e-mail or telephone.  Used oboes are an off-menu item, and are not sold through our Shop page.

Hans Kreul/Miraphone

Used Hans Kreul/Miraphone Oboe.  Wonderful student oboe at an outstanding price.

Miraphone is an advanced oboe, made by Hans Kreul, the great Germany oboe maker,  specifically  for the American market.  I  invested significant time and effort finding this oboe because of its outstanding quality and value.  This used oboe has a big, dark German sound, which actually matches their professional model.  It has certain similarities in tone color to Laubins, but without the oboe d'amore overtones and the high price tag.  They stopped making oboes in 1999, so this oboe is older, but based on its excellent condition, it was probably made in the late 80s or early 90s.  It was well cared for buy a oboist/music educator, has been fully  serviced, and is concert ready.  Comes with a professional case and cover, reed case, silk swab, and three new reeds.  $2,750.
