The beginner Yamaha models are great for students.

I belive they are the YOB 441's? Correct me if I'm wrong. But they have left F, some trill keys, but no low Bb.

Canadian, that is his or her alias by the way, um, do you know a beginner Yamaha oboe that features the left hand F, all the trill keys and a low B flat key? By the way, my price range is between $1300 - $2000

About the Yamaha:

The YOB241 has a Left F key, C#-D#,F#-G#, A#-B, B-C#, C-D Trill keys, but no low Bb key.

Although there is no Bb key, there are two vent holes in the bell, which when covered with the knees makes a Bb.

The whole body is also made of ABS Resin as it will not crack.

As far as price, I'm not sure.

As sound, I play on this model, and it is the best student model I've played on. Yamaha is always a good brand.

Yeah, I have a friend who has that model of the Yamaha... heh, he gets a huge kick out of the Bb knee thing...
I myself am looking at a new oboe... borrowing a friend's Linton right now, but obviously Lintons aren't great, so we're looking into a new one, right now thinking about a Selmer 1492.

Haha, it's really fun to do! It works best in shorts but it makes your legs vibrate too!

It feels quite neat though!

Oh, I'm in the process of buying a used Loree! I'm so happy, such an upgrade from my Yamaha!

Charles music has a used Bulgheroni in that price range.
Oboeworks has a couple used Lorees.
MMimports has a used Cabart, no left F.
RDG has a used Loree/Cabart, no left F.
Usedoboes has a used Fox 333, no leff F.

Try before you buy. Keep in mind the cost of shipping to you and returning with insurance, that may limit how much trying you can do. The dealers should be able to play the oboes for you over the phone if necessary.

Left F can be added to wooden oboes after the fact, may cost around $300-400.
