 Re: best oboe to buy for a student

My experience with wood is... Cracks...

My resin oboe.. My son kicked a ball into... Quite hard.. The reed cut my lip.. But the oboe didn't crack.

My resin recorders have been dropped, used as swords etc (these activities are stopped the moment I witness them).. And they show no signs of wear.

I am not sure if every resin instrument is as strong.. But the ones I have owned have been beaut.

Personally.. I would choose a new resin instrument over a 1998 Fox. Reason being.. To replace the pads is about 100$ a pad... And the springs etc (assume oboes have them) can be "tired"

That is exactly the reason I bought the AW resin rather than ordering a used one online.

I have often bought flutes online. But am finding that the tiredness of the pads means the total cost will be more than buying online..
