    Question Noblet Paris Conservatory oboe

    I recently saw a used Noblet Paris Conservatory oboe at a local music store and was interested in purchasing it. I just wanted to see what kind of reputation it has since I can't seem to find a lot of information on the web about it.

    What are your thoughts?

    Don't bother. If you want a good entry level oboe, look for a used Fox resonite. Or spend the bread, and get something that will retain its value.

    Good names in oboe:
    Marigaux
    Rigoutat
    Loree
    Laubin
    Howarth

    All of the above are excellent choices.

    You may also want to look into a Bulgheroni.
    My middle daughter plays one. You get a lot more oboe for less $$$$$.
    They are every bit as good as the more 'mainstream' names and in some areas, BETTER.
    Old reed players are like fine wine. They only get better with age. Tom Hagen

    Play the Music, not the instrument.

    I am an oboist, and you should wake up.
    The oboe he is talking about is a leblanc noblet oboe (leblanc bought noblet in 1904, so the oboe might be really old)
    In it's day it would have been really good. they are not produced and they do not have pads on their keys for they are open hole. it potentially could be really rare. It is an old fashioned open hole oboe. noblet only made open hole.
