    Question Noblet Paris Conservatory oboe

    I recently saw a used Noblet Paris Conservatory oboe at a local music store and was interested in purchasing it. I just wanted to see what kind of reputation it has since I can't seem to find a lot of information on the web about it.

    What are your thoughts?

    Don't bother. If you want a good entry level oboe, look for a used Fox resonite. Or spend the bread, and get something that will retain its value.

    Good names in oboe:
    Marigaux
    Rigoutat
    Loree
    Laubin
    Howarth

    check this web-sight for more oboe info:

    All of the above are excellent choices.

    You may also want to look into a Bulgheroni.
    My middle daughter plays one. You get a lot more oboe for less $$$$$.
    They are every bit as good as the more 'mainstream' names and in some areas, BETTER.

    Play the Music, not the instrument.
