Here are the questions that spring to mind:

1) Why is your daughter buying another instrument? Is she dissatisfied with how her current instrument performs?

2) What about her current instrument is less than satisfactory? Tone? Scale? Reliability? Not having full conservatory keywork?

3) Does she not realize that buying an instrument without playing on it might be wasting money?

4) What does her teacher have to say about the process? Does he not have any concerns about a student buying an instrument sight unseen?

I'm guessing that you made an uninformed post asking about WWBW when you really have no idea about what is involved in the decision to purchase an oboe.

Buying an instrument based on price alone is a very bad decision, much like choosing a surgeon based on price alone. You may pay the lowest price, but you will be stuck with whatever you get, and that may be worse than what you already have.
