Howarth B models were made by both Prestini and Orsi - the early ones don't have a forked F vent and the later ones from the '80s onwards do as well as being both ring key or covered action. The other difference with Howarth B models compared to the other Italian imports is the Howarth ones have the bore reamed with Howarth reamers.

The problem with eBay is many instruments are listed saying 'recently overhauled' or words to that effect which may or may not be true. Even if they say they've been 'fully overhauled', the quality of the work may be questionable or they may have been overhauled, but several years ago and have clocked up plenty of mileage since then.

I had one come to me for a service which was sold as having been fully overhauled and checked by an oboe specialist, only all the cork pads were hewn from sheet cork full of pores and it was completely unplayable. See attachment as that's what the pads looked like. I had to completely overhaul it for the buyer as there was no way they'd have been able to play it as it was when they got it.

Chris.
