They may sell stuff, but that doesn't mean they know much about stuff when it comes to dealing with any issues besides replacing like for like or offering a refund. For better service, only buy from specialists.

As far as I can see from wwbw.com site which isn't much besides a Vincent Bach cornet mouthpiece for $56.00 no matter what I click on, they're just another online seller. Even if they have used oboes listed (which I can't even view), is there any way of knowing these will have been serviced and set up prior to being sold or sold as seen and perhaps not playable without having any work needed doing to them? If there are any problems, have they got any in-house specialists who can they deal with them?

While it's always nice to shop around for a bargain, with oboes both new and used (and not just oboes), what may appear to be a good deal may be anything but a good deal if buying blind. And buying an oboe or any instrument is a personal thing and not like buying a telly or a fridge.

Please let me know which of the top ranking oboe makers aren't specialists.

Chris.
