 Re: speaking of student oboes

On the second hand market,
I would say have a look at the Linton model "ZRL" professional model.
(Yes, I know, the bulk of Linton USA made oboes= junk).
The ZRL model has ALL the professional keys, though no 3rd octave (does not need a 3rd octave key), and no low Bb resonance (does not need this either).
I have come prefer the ZRL over any of the Selmer, Yamaha, Buffet, or even Fox student or intermediate model oboes for beginning students. I always recommend that even the first day beginner have benefit of an oboe with all the requisite professional keys if at all possible. The ZRL was also marketed under the "Armstrong" aegis (model 5030), and all the ZRL Armstrong instruments have a serial number beginning with ZRL. Wood or plastic. Though I prefer the wood version, the plastic in fact has a good sound. Usually about $1400-$1600
after servicing. All of the teachers I have introduced the ZRL oboes to have been most favorable. The ZRL model does not come up for sale often, though in my estimation well worth a look in comparison to "everything else" on the block...

Truly,
Peter
