This auction is for my son's Marigaux 901 Oboe.

It has a beautiful tone and plays well.


"Semi-automatic, grenadilla wood, silverplated keys.
The very heart and essence of Marigaux manufacture, the original sound according to Mr. Jules Marigaux’s standard.
Wood rigorously selected, dried during at least four years.
A traditional manufacture, true to the excellent reputation of French craftsmanship.
A much easier and sharper low register(double correspondence on the bell).
A high register which is even and direct.
An excellent orchestral oboe played by the greatest ensembles worldwide.
3rd octave key, double F key"


For its first 5 years it was purchased brand new, broken in carefully and properly, used for a grade 8 exam then after the exam wasn't played much at all.

This is then when we purchased it after getting it checked thoroughly.

My son played this Marigaux as 1st oboe in Auckland Youth Orchestra and also for the finals in the Secondary Schools National Chamber Competition. He has won many competitions on this oboe.

It's a 2006 model.

It as been well looked after and serviced. Here are the last two services:

It had a complete service done in Australia with John Armstrong in 2015. Receipts provided.

End of 2017 we had it serviced, pads replaced and professionally cleaned at ABI music, ready for selling. Receipts provided. Please click here to ask a question
