I use the 441 and the 241 (211) for my middle school band kids (I am also a MS band director in addition to a college professor of oboe). They hold up well and are VERY consistent. However, I may suggest a few other options that are superb for not much more pricewise.

MCW oboes -- GREAT horns! Dark velvety sound and not too much more expensive with all of the bells and whistles

Bulgheroni -- By far some of the BEST horns I have played in many years. IN fact, so good that when I purchase a new oboe in a year or two, I will purchase a Bulgheroni and not a Loree, which I have played on for about 15 years. The student line bulgheroni horns (and the pro horns) are exquisite! I am told Carlos Coehlo will be a dealer soon. There is also a place out in Colorado or something...www.thereedroom.com that is a US dealer. You can also deal with woodwind/brasswind who will send you horns on trial.

I have been told (unofficially) that the MCW horns are actually Bulgheroni manufactured. :-)
