Hi, I am considering buying a my own oboe. Iīve been playing oboe for 5 years, but donīt plan to be a professional oboist.
I want to buy oboe from USA, they are much cheaper than in Europe.
I am thinking of Buffet 4057/4052 (I play on automatic oboe, but no chance to buy an automatic oboe in USA), but my dream is Tiery E30 (too expensive for a poor student, however). My eye have caught also student models by Bulgheroni, Patricola and Schreiber. Any experiences with these?
Sorry for my English.

If you can afford Patricola, go ahead. That is a real professional instrument. Have not played it myself, but have heard many good reviews. I play on a Loree oboe F series. It has a nice dark and mellow tone to it. You could probably buy one from the USA if you wanted. They are around $4000-5000 in good condition. Again, these are professional instruments. Covey Oboes is an American-made oboe. Warning: they are expensive, but supposedly, the New York Philharmonic plays on these. I have tried a Covey and love the resonance. Hope this helps.

Thank you, OboeNightmare. However, I really donīt need a proffesional oboe nor I have enough money for it.
Student Bulgheroni 091 or Patricola SB1, thatīs the question right now.

The Bulgheroni is quite a good student model. Go for that one.
