Hey guys! I've been doing some thinking, and i want to start the oboe. There are some problems though. I currently play the clarinet, and double with the E-flat clarinet and bass clarinet. I have been playing clarinet for about 5 years, and i just started the Eb clarinet earlier in 2010. I've been listening to a lot of music, and I really like the sound and tone of the oboe, and i think it would be a blast to play. However, I have an all-county audition for clarinet and E-flat clarinet in april, and my dad cautions me from messing up my chops by playing too many instruments. I really wanna keep studying clarinet, and hopefully get into a professional chamber orchestra or symphony. Also, i've been looking all day, and I can't find a good student oboe that's under $800. Why are these things so expensive?? Student clarinets go for about $200! What's your opinion on this matter? Can you help me find a good cheap oboe (used is okay)? Thanks in advance!
