Rigoutat Symphony Oboe 

Conservatory Model

Superb Condition! Superb Player!

One of the world's most sought after oboes has just come into our shop as a trade-in! This Rigoutat Symphony model oboe made in Paris c1955 was well maintained. Serial number 030X. Made of grenadilla wood with silver plated nickel keys. All silver plating intact. All pads are in good condition, none are broken or worn. Just a bit discoloration on some of the cork pads. Skin pads look practically new. We noticed that there was an upper joint crack which was pinned and sealed. It's barely noticeable from the outside or inside but there is evidence of three little spots of filler where the pins went in. The previous owner believed this to be a Symphony Model but we cannot verify this because there are no identifying marks anywhere on the instrument.

The specs are as follows:


Donut D key

Left Hand Eb

F resonance key

Bb resonance key Left hand and Right hand G#

Automatic octaves

C# trill

F# trill

Manufacturers Description:

Rigoutat Oboe

RIGOUTAT oboes are high-level professional oboes. Made of African Grenadilla wood or of violet wood, they are available in the Classical, Symphony and Evolution bore design (Violet wood available only in Symphony bore).
By the richness of its tone quality, the Classical RIGOUTAT oboe remains the oboe of soloists and concert artists.
With an easier emission in the lows and in the low high links, the RIGOUTAT Symphony oboe is better adapted to the orchestra.
Its tone quality merges better with other instruments.
The RIGOUTAT Evolution oboe has inherited the rich tone quality of the Classical oboe, but also a higher low register and a more stable high register.

This lovely oboe has just been serviced in our shop. Cleaned. oiled and fully adjusted. Comes with a full 6 month warranty for service.

The Rigoutat oboe has the sweetest tone you can imagine. Excellent quick response. Plays with ease in any register. Impeccable intonation. Great blend with other instruments and orchestra. Tuning up to A=442. We are offering this instrument with the Protec case shown, a new reed, cork grease and silk swab.

Shipping shown is only an estimate. We have many shipping options available.. New York residents are subject to NYS sales tax.

Buy "gently used" and save a bundle! These pro oboes are sold new for $12,650. Offered from a full service retail music store with a history going back more than 66 years.

Come try our oboes or any instrument in the store. We're open 6 days a week from 11AM to 8PM.
