Comments about Fox Model 300 Professional Oboe:

This purchase was a long time coming as I had studied clarinet before and thought the oboe would be a good instrument to play as they are similar. I asked several oboe players I know as to what would be a good brand and Fox was recommended. I ordered the Fox model 300 on 9/29/11 and the instrument has been a joy to play ever since. I am planning to visit the Fox factory in October for a tour and the free overhaul they offer.

Comments about Fox Model 300 Professional Oboe:

If you have picked this oboe, you will not be dissapointed. I have had this oboe for three years now and it has never let me down once. The low notes seem to sing and the high notes are fairly sharp at times but with a good reed, everthing should be great. I have also played on a buffet and a selmer but neither have compared to the Fox 300

Great Instrument

Comments about Fox Model 300 Professional Oboe:

I've been playing my 300 on the road for about 2 years now. The best thing about it is consistency in all types of climate and weather. It is extremely durable, has a very even scale and is responsive as any professional instrument. My only complaints are I had a bit of key height tweaking to do before I got it the way I wanted it (intonation and response). Also as with most oboes I find the low B a bit sluggish (eg Le Tombeau). . By the way my back up instrument is a Loree Royale (which responds better on some things but is less durable).
