Mschmidt/Hotboy, thanks for those replies.

I definitely think having someone other than me try out the one's I'm considering with instrument-specific adjusted reeds is a great idea.

As for why I'm looking for a different oboe, there are several reasons. My son (9 years old) has shown some interest, and I think having the option of passing down my first to him makes sense, plus I'm fortunate to be in a financial position now to pick out something myself, and the process is an exciting and entertaining one, so far.

I, indeed, plan on learning reed-making/adjusting, as best as the time I have to give it allows.

I did just get word today that the wife of my late teacher has quite a bit of Oboe-related items for which she needs to find home (reed tools, etc.), including his Loree Royal oboe, so I'm certainly going to see about that this week, but I still want to try a Howarth, Laubin, and maybe a Rigoutat (my english horn is a Rigoutat from 1970 in wonderful condition).
