The S2 oboe is a model not made anymore by Howarth. Despite this it remains a reliable oboe for advanced players. S2's are ring model oboes; making them a little lighter, but requiring a good technique.
Dates from around 1960 and in lovely condition.
Will receive a full service by our workshop.
This would be a great oboe for someone looking for an affordable oboe capable of playing to a high level, with a body that produces a professional tone.
Service Notes: A pre delivery service/check will be undertaken prior to shipping. At busy periods this may entail a small delay. If this order is urgent please contact us as we are usually able to expedite.
