 Re: Bundy

Just gone back through my Ebay purchase history. The TP plastic Bundy was purchased from mac4560 and actually cost $Aus 315 (not $Aus 395) and the postage from Great Britain was $Aus 60.68 (even though it actually shows $Aus 6.68 which can't be correct) The purchase was made on the 13th May this year. For a good 'knockabout' Oboe it is excellent. Unlike the Howarth S2 which is mostly opened hole the Bundy is plateau keys (covered holes). And here's something interesting. Even though it's just got the basic keywork there is hardly a trill that can't be done on it except for the low C-C# trill which is no big deal. Even most flutes don't have that trill either. I can easily play a 5 sharp or flat key signature and I'm working through the 6 sharp & flat key signatures in Rubanks Selected Studies for Oboe which is identical to the Saxphone book. (same written range / compass)
