My name is***** have been buying, selling and appraising musical instruments since 1970. Can you tell me what model this is or if there are any other markings?



Customer: replied 1 year ago.
all I can see imprinted is Chauvet a Paris and then below is a very fancy C. I really don't know much about oboes as this was my husband's and since he has died I intend to sell it. Thanks for some kind of estimate as to what I can expect to sell it for.
Expert:  Wayne replied 1 year ago.


Your oboe is an intermediate to professional level instrument. Assuming it is in good playable condition, this would sell for $400-600 at auction and on the secondary market and insurance value is $1000. Ebay would be a good place to sell this.

Thank you,
