 Re: Renard/Fox 330 Oboes - Rate Or Slate?

Incidentally the owner of this oboe has had it since the early '90s and is currently a university physics lecturer over here in the UK (she's been here for fifteen years having moved from the US) and plays in a number of the university city's orchestras.

While I had my 330 all in pieces the other day I could see it had undercut toneholes which not many intermediate model oboes have. I haven't had the chance to play mine properly in any band or orchestral setting since I bought it because of the pandemic (I had my first rehearsal last Wednesday since early March 2020) but I will definitely give it a good playing this week.

The more recent 330s now have a 3rd 8ve and low Bb vent which brings them up to the same spec as a Howarth S40c/S45c and Cabart - the keywork also looks more refined as well compared to the older versions.

I just used their serial number search which shows mine (88xx) was made in 1993:
