 Re: speaking of student oboes

The Linton ZRL oboes were in fact made BY Linton in Elkhart.
The ZRL is not one of the "Linton" Cabart or Malerne "stencil" instruments.
The key-work is actually OK- superior to Selmer, Larilee, and such ilk.
I believe that Linton stopped manufacturing the ZRL sometimes in the 1990s.
The last price I have seen for a new wood ZRL was about $3975,
though the plastic version was likely less. I buy the ZRL oboes on Ebay for between $600 and $900 and have the instruments overhauled/serviced.
The ZRL oboes do not come up for sale very often- perhaps one every two to three months. The other difficulty is that it takes forever to have an oboe overhauled due to the dire shortage of oboe repair specialists. All of the oboe repair specialists who accomplish repair/overhaul for me have work many, many months in advance.
Unless the economy crashes into oblivion, oboe repair specialists seem to have a recession proof calling! I have 3-4 ZRL oboes now all awaiting overhaul- I do not ever dare make any promises to prospective buyers about when a specific oboe may emerge from a repair person's atelier...
With best wishes,
Peter
