Hannah’s Mission

Hannah

My mission is to make quality Oboes, English horns and Oboes d’amore accessible and affordable for aspiring players of all ages so their experience will be positive and successful.

I specialize in New and Used Oboes, English horns and Oboes D’Amore for players of all ages and levels. I regularly stock Loree, Laubin, Fox, Yamaha, Howarth, Marigaux, Fossati and Buffet instruments.  Soon I will have in stock professional oboes and English Horns by Gebrüder Mönnig.  I carry instruments of the highest quality and value that will exceed your expectations. I offer clients the highest level of personal service.

This philosophy arose many years ago when I started on a plastic Linton oboe. This oboe lacked many of the standard keys and was in ill repair. Needless to say, my experience was not favorable, and it is amazing that I chose to major in music. It took my mom 5 years to be able to buy me my first Loree back in 1969.

I guarantee my instruments to be in ready-to-play condition and top quality. Instruments are available for a one week trial.
My extensive inventory changes daily.  For my current stock of instruments please  Email: theoboefairy@gmail.com or call me at 602-999-0325.

I ship by Fed Ex insured. The prospective buyer pays for roundtrip shipping regardless of purchase.

No sales tax charged on out of state purchases.
Arizona delivered sales are charged 7.95%.

Fast email replies. Service and Satisfaction are my pleasure.
FREE – NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATIONS.

Testimonials from throughout the US, Canada and Japan!

Thank you for your confidence in permitting me to assist you in this very important musical decision.
Cordially, Hannah Selznick
