I tried the Fox Sayen a few years ago. Fine oboe...good sound and intonation, but low resale value.

I find oboes to be very personal...so much of the tone and sound come from the instrument, I suggest trying and comparing before buying as three examples of the same model may sound and play differently. Unless you look be in Chicago or New York, you probably don’t live near any stores so will have to have them shipped to you.

I recommend shawna at oboe Chicago or Jeff at Midwest musical imports. Both have websites with a good selection of new and used oboes and liberal trial policies.

I now play a Covey I’m very happy with, and have had love/hate relationships with Loree. Another brand to consider is MCW. A Bulgheroni manufacture, but assembled and fine tuned by Mark Chernow. Missing the c banana key, but otherwise, a great instrument in every respect (I play a Bulgheroni EH so am biased).
