 Re: boosey and Hawkes regent oboe vs selmer sterling oboe

I've just had a look at the two Howarth B models on sale at £499 and both are listed as 'seller refurbished'.

The one in the blue lined case is the newer of the two and has a low B-C link which means you can do a low B-C# slur much easier than ones without that link. The one in the new case with the burgundy lining is a much older one and doesn't have the raised tonehole bush for LH3.

As for the 'seller refurbished' part, I don't like the look of those tenon corks on either of them and it also looks like they may have used leather pads on the newer one.

Chris.
