Oboes are an instrument that most music stores simply do not understand. Here at Kessler & Sons, we are the opposite of that as there are 3 double reed players in the Kessler family! Too often, players only have access to oboes that are easy for the music store to sell (meaning that they are oboes offered by brand names that make a myriad of other instruments). However, the best oboes are usually made by custom oboe specialty makers meaning that the music store needs to be able to identify this quality level and be willing to deal with smaller manufacturer payment & importing terms (which are not as “dealer friendly” as the bigger companies).

Kessler & Sons Music carries a carefully selected variety of oboes in our shop. We meticulously sift and sort through everything that the industry has to offer in order to offer our customers the absolutely best values and best oboes on the market today! If you are having a hard time figuring out exactly which instrument is right for your needs, give us a call and talk to one of our experts today!


We carry a carefully selected batch of instruments for our customers. Focusing on the Howarth models (made in the UK) and our Kessler Custom models, we feel the instruments below represent the best performing oboes in their respective price ranges and quality levels.

If there is a model that you are interested in that is not listed here, or if you have any questions about any of these instruments, please give us a call and we would be more than happy to help find the right oboe for your needs!
