In the last two years I have returned to playing as a doubler after many years, many...not playing at all. I spent the first year playing flute every day and taking lessons as it is the deal killer for me. I have a very nice Myizawa flute and I was able to get to the point where I was able to get a show here in Missoula, Montana. I first tried Kessler when I bought one of their piccolo’s. It is terrific for me, makes a very respectable sound and is in tune. I play bassoon acceptably and wanted to try oboe. I know I probably need a $5k oboe, but have had the same good experience with the base line Kessler I had with the piccolo. On saxophone a good mouthpiece can make a big difference. Reeds seem to be the same with oboe. I can’t vouch for pitch as I am not that far along, but I can keep the instrument in tune. I am lucky to live in a community With a good theater, and look forward to in person performance again soon. Thanks to the people at Kessler for making the doubles affordable and available.

Kessler has always been highly recommended. It sounds like you’ve made quite a comeback in your playing.

I've very recently rented an oboe from my university, and may want to purchase one some day... I have a Kessler Soprano that I'm fairly happy with, tone quality is great but the middle C# is very flat. Viewing other oboe forums made me very cautious of every brand other than the the more well known ones, but if more people support the Kessler oboe, I may end up with one of them.

I continue to be happy. I recognize you can buy better instruments, but in my budget I have a functional instrument I play in tune.
