 Re: Lined oboes vs. synthetic top joint oboes

Hi Christine,

Concerning the liner separating from the wood, that is not something that is likely to happen. There is a lot of info on the web about oboes and I have not once seen anything referring to this as a concern or an issue. In general, you are making a trade off when going for a synthetic liner of any kind -- you are getting a more "durable" oboe, but the sound will not be quite as good as wood. That being said, the difference is very little, so it is certainly a trade off worth considering. Your best bet is to jump into the waters and order some oboes on trial and compare. Then you can make an informed decision.

Tom
