 boosey and Hawkes regent oboe vs selmer sterling oboe
Author: louM

Hi,

I am debating between a B&H ebonite Regent oboe and a wooden Selmer Sterling open holed oboe.

I am predominantly a flute player and prefer the idea of a wooden instrument but it seems ebonite is more hardy for newbies not hot on maintenance?

I would like an instrument that I don't have to change in the next couple of years. I am approximately grade 6/7 in flute but will only be learning oboe part time, amongst my other hobbies, flute and work and so I thin it will be slow progress learning the oboe.

It seems the Regent is a safer choice, but is it likely to last me a few years of learning or is it more only for 1 or 2 years of playing before I will want to move up?

Both instruments have been fully serviced.

What do you guys think?

EDIT: I also found a Yamaha 241B oboe at a similar price range, but it hasn't been serviced. It just says 'good condition'. The listing describes it as modified Conservatoire System- European system. I am in the UK so not sure if that makes a difference in terms of teaching books and tutoring and tutorials.
