Those who respond are generally going to tell you to access a good teacher because the whole "reed and instrument thing" is just something that non-oboe players won't get for a while. I too a was degreed classical violinist, competent brass player, and I a) got a good teacher right away, b) was really glad that I got on a pro level instrument pretty quickly after discovering the drawbacks of a crummy one, and c) found that store bought reeds are pretty useless, and d) found that even online-bought-pro-made reeds are just never going to work without being adjusted. From my POV the oboe itself, given it is a good one, is not impossible to play reasonably well (e.g., in tune over the whole range) with a modicum of correct instruction *and*a*good*reed*, but the finagling with reeds is a significant drawback, one that I have not been able to conquer myself.
