 Re: What sort of oboe do you play and why
Author: Barry Vincent

Two other things to be noted concerning the Howarth S2 and the Bundy. On the S2 there is the low B/C linkage which I do really find very useful but is not on the Bundy. I have to keep this in mind when I'm playing the Bundy. Also , the S2 has semi-automatic octave keys and the Bundy has simple octave keys.
Interestingly, when I'm using the S2 I nearly always seem to use the octave keys as if they where the simple set up. I don't have a problem with this at all so there's another piece of mechanism complexity that I find is not essential.
And I can also get up to high F# easily on either Oboes so what's this idea that you need a third octave key ? Perhaps it's needed to sound the high G which I do find 'tight' and difficult. I can live without such a thing though as this high note is hardly ever seen even in the Tutor books I have.
