Buy one of our Oboes, Bassoons or Bocals from Anywhere in the European Union

We have sold instruments and crooks (bocals) to customers in more than 20 countries, both in the EU and outside it, including to Australia, the Middle East, and North and South America as well as Europe. It is safe and easy to buy from us, wherever you are. Here is what a customer from Portugal wrote to us in an email:

My son is absolutely in love with his bassoon. I received it on time, and tracked it sucessfully. The packing was immaculate. My son's teacher and one other teacher tried it intensively. They were absolutely convinced by the overall condition, the free blowing sound, the good intonation and said it was one of the best bassoons they have seen and tried in this price range.

It was just like it was described to me, and as I saw in the pictures. I would like to thank Oliver for his patience and great advice in choosing the right instrument for my son, and Martin for the efficient communication and quick conclusion of my purchase. I should say my son is now thriving in his school's youth orchestra! Many other parents have asked us where this beautiful instrument was bought!! I can't thank you enough, I most certainly made the best choice, based on the trustworthy advice by Oliver. We will be in touch as soon as my son needs an upgrade!! :) MT, Portugal

If You Live Outside the EU

Here are a few points to bear in mind if you live outside the EU:

  • Insurance. Any bassoon, oboe or accessory you buy is insured by us until it is in your possession, so you don't have to worry about loss or damage on its way to you.

  • VAT (sales tax). The prices shown on our web site are inclusive of the UK's VAT tax (where applicable). If you live outside the EU, you will not have to pay VAT so the price may be less than the price shown on the web site - please ask for a quotation.

  • Shipping. The cost of shipping your instrument or crook/bocal will be in addition to the price shown on the web site. Please ask and we will be pleased to quote you.

  • Payment options. We accept direct transfer of funds in US dollars, euros or pounds sterling. We will quote you an inclusive price in US dollars or euros at the current pound sterling exchange rate before payment.

If You Live Inside the EU

Here are a few points to bear in mind if you live inside the EU:

  • Insurance. Any bassoon, oboe or accessory you buy is insured by us until it is in your possession, so you don't have to worry about loss or damage on its way to you.
  • Warranty. We provide a free 12 month guarantee in the EU for all the products we sell. You can either return the item to us or we will pay to have it repaired locally.

  • Full refund within 14 days. Within the EU we will refund the cost of the item (excluding postage) if you decide it isn't right for you and return it (in the condition in which we sent it to you) within 14 days of receiving it.
  • Free shipping to many EU countries. The cost of shipping to most countries in the EU is free, but please ask for a quote.

  • Buy Back Scheme for bassoons and oboes. Wherever you see the Buy Back icon on our web site, you will be able to buy that particular bassoon or oboe safe in the knowledge that you can return it to us up to two years after buying it and receive a large percentage of the purchase price back.
