The other thing to consider is that eBay is not really recognised by most as the best place to purchase an oboe. They are often sold by non-oboists that often have no idea in regards to defects, quality etc, or it can be used to offload instruments that have inherent problems. You also have to consider when going on eBay whether or not you want thumbplate or conservatoire, because if searching on overseas ebay sites, that is a serious consideration. People often sell their second hand instruments through professionals who know what they are talking about such as Hannah from "The Oboe Fairy", Carlos Coelho http://carlosoboe.com, Crowthers, Howarth, Peter Hurd (oboes.us) Richard Craig...etc as they often buy second hand instruments outright or sell on consignment. If you purchase from a well known and respected source, the chances of getting a defective instruments are next to zero, and you also have people who stand by what they sell. On saying that, one can get a good bargain on eBay, but chances are, you are more likely to purchase a lemon. Then there are the fake listings that crop up from time to time.
