 Vintage Oboe Questions
Author: adeluca

Hello All: I recently acquired this oboe from a seller in Germany, for use as a prop in a historical film. The seller indicated that the instrument was most likely from the late 19th century, but he wasn't entirely sure. The bell is not removable (by design, I believe), and there is a hairline crack in the upper joint, but it's otherwise mechanically sound. The pads are shot.

The sole marking on the back is "Carl Gottlob Schuster Markneukirchen". Does anyone have any insights about this instrument? I'd consider bringing it back to full playing condition if the instrument had some intrinsic value.

Thanks!
