Ok, Chinese oboes HAVE improved in terms of intonation and tuning since I last commented on them, but they still have crude keywork which may not be to everyone's ergonomics and the general quality of fit and finish still has a lot to be desired compared to student model oboes being made by oboe specialist makers and oboes offered by companies that make all woodwinds.

But it's still buyer beware and poor resale value compared to established makers.

Chris.
