Learn More about the Oboe Department

At MMI, our oboists take great pride in the services we offer. We work diligently to provide the best possible experience for all our clients ranging from beginners to professional musicians. We have cultivated close working relationships with many professional oboists throughout the country and frequently offer instruments hand-selected at the manufacturers. We also work hand in hand with our repair department ensuring that every instrument, new or used, meets our extremely high standards. As part of a dual setup process, all of our instruments go through a complete physical setup followed by a personal set up by our oboe specialists. This assures that every instrument that leaves our shop meets the highest quality standards in performance. We strive to offer a diverse selection of instruments of the highest quality as well as numerous accessories and cane options. We work closely with all of our clients and bring to the table 20+ years of oboe experience and knowledge. Whether you’re looking for a new instrument or simply advice on what cane is good right now, we’re here to help.
