I started the oboe in 1973 and after playing Malerne, Noblet and Rigoutat, this is by far I prefer the latter.
Balanced sound without notes that "sound" or "suppressed" easy whatever the shade issue. Reliable, precise adjustments, good flexibility even keywork trays matches, silver high quality (do not wear out nearly).
No problems slots needed some repairs and maintenance, strong spaced (I do not play regularly), but the cork is good buffering.
Quality - Price: While the oboe is an expensive instrument, but it is among the best without being more expensive than its competitors.
I have no plans to change brands if I have to change.
