 Re: speaking of student oboes

Do bear in mind the UK spec Yamaha 200 series oboes have low Bb and a forked F vent (but no LH F key) - they do have a thumbplate fitted making them dual system, but that can easily be removed (and the pillar holes filled in) to make it purely conservatoire system.

They also appear to have a low B-C link so you can slur from D to low Bb or Bb without the need to hold the low C key down. You can also do a low B-C# trill by holding the low B key down and trilling with the low C# key. Whether they all have this remains to be seen (the old "We reserve the right to change the specification without notice on all our products" thing), but it's very useful in an oboe without the articulated low C# fitted as it's near impossible to do a low B-C# trill on them.
