just my two cents, but this was my reasoning for choosing bassoon over oboe...

I started as a cellist, and then bassist, before ever picking up a sax, so I was more skilled in bass clef reading from the start. When I decided to learn a double reed, i went bassoon because even though I could read 4 clefs with a decent mastery, I decided bassoon would be easier on me to find music for, since all of my cello music is in a bassoon range (nothing else to buy).

That probably doesn't help much,'ll figure it out.

The advice about the doubling in pits is good too, since what sax you focus on might have a bearing on your choice...

or learn both haha.
