Generally you do get what you have paid for, and perhaps you had better stick with a well known maker, unless you have money you can play around with. I have tried a few different Chinese made oboes. A few, Like the AW ( Armstrong-Werth) ones are very good, but they are the exception rather than the rule. I have heard mixed reports of the Schiller, but I think they are trying hard. There will always be cheap oboes for the market that are very hard to play and with shoddy workmanship, and this is no matter where the country of origin. My advice see if you can get your hands on one to trial, and have a good repairer assess its worth to you.
