'Hotboy',
I would LOVE to get a teacher but there is no one doing face to face lessons right now where I am, and I won't be able to partake in online lessons without an instrument. So a bit of a catch 22 eh. I play flute, piano and guitar amongst some other lesser known instruments, I should hope the oboe isn't the first instrument I give up after 6 months!
But I did suspect as much when you say an open holed instrument is frustrating as I suppose you need excellent/ impeccable technique.



'Chris P',

I shall ask about the forked F vent on the yamaha thank you! The listing says it has a 'modified Conservatoire System but also says 'conservatoire European system.' so I am a bit baffled what that falls under (dual system? Thumbplate with european conservatoire system??). If I am unlikely to find a conservatoire system teacher (once everything settles with the pandemic) then it sounds like I will struggle with that instrument.

The Howarth S20 is a bit out of my price range- the serviced oboes I am looking at are £200 (B&H Regent) to £350 (yamaha) whereas the Howard is coming out more than double the yamaha by the looks of it!...Chris P wrote:
