Do NOT buy a cheap Chinese, or any other cheap new oboe. You will regret it, and the resale value is very low. You would easily become discouraged if you went down that route. There are good second hand instruments out there and a variety of sources you could find one. If you decide, after some time, that it is not for you, you have a better chance of selling the instrument for your purchase price or more, and you have the best chance of success learning and playing on a reasonable and functional instrument.
