 Re: Romeo Orsi Milano Oboe

These are usually very basic thumbplate system oboes, and have gone under many names from various UK importers/distributors - Howarth being perhaps one if not the last UK company to import them (although the Howarth B models were the only version to have the bores reamed at the Howarth factory to Howarth spec - all others will probably still have the Orsi bore as it left the Orsi factory).

This oboe may not be the greatest but it's definitely not the worst by a long shot, it's been the standard beginner oboe in the UK for several decades and can get you to around Grade 5 if not higher (though the basic keywork will be a limiting factor) and doesn't have too bad a tone compared to some other makes in the same range (and can sound much better than some more expensive ones).
