Comments about Fox Renard Model 330 Oboe:

So excited to find an open box Fox 330 - new ones are hard to find in stock. Even though the description said it had a scratch on the upper joint, once the oboe arrived, we really couldn't see it because it was so small. The shipping time was faster than expected and the instrument sounds great! Such an improvement over my son's student oboe and he now actually practices!

Really great oboe.

Comments about Fox Renard Model 330 Oboe:

I bought the Fox 330 oboe directly from the Fox website about 7.5 years ago when I was just finishing grade 8. It was a huge upgrade from my student model Yamaha. This oboe has a wonderful, dark and rich sound, especially for a plastic oboe. It has a fairly even scale, though I've noticed that the high register is slightly sharper. It's great for a student looking to upgrade, very low maintenance (it's not wood, so you don't have to worry about it cracking!) and has a very nice sound. It's been incredibly reliable and lovely to play. I'm in my third year studying oboe in university, and I'm still using my Fox 330. I am looking to upgrade to a Lor?e within the next couple of months, but my Fox has been marvellous to me over the years. If you're looking for an upgrade, this is an awesome choice. You really can't go wrong with this oboe. It's worth every cent.

Reliable Oboe

Comments about Fox Renard Model 330 Oboe:

I started out playing a wooden Selmer in my high school band. A tragic incident occurred resulting in the instrument needing many repairs. while the Selmer was in the shop I used this model of Fox and I've never gone back to the Selmer. I've been in numerous honor bands with this oboe and I am truly satisfied with it's quality. A great investment and a great instrument for the middle or high school student to use.

Comments about Fox Renard Model 330 Oboe:

Well this oboe treated me well; it's very easy to play on while producing great tone at the same time. Also, because of its plastic frame it can be used outdoors in different weather conditions. The best for the aspiring student trying to learn oboe.
