Great Instrument

Comments about Bulgheroni Student Oboe:

I had been without an oboe for a few years (used to play throughout grade school and was pretty good as I made state). At this stage in my life, I just wanted something to play in my free time, for church and possibly weddings. That's why I chose to look into the intermediate level oboes. I utilized the WWBW's "Selection Plan" and tried out this and the Yamaha YOB-441 (wood). At first, I could not tell a difference between the two; they were both easy to play, responded well in all registers (or so I thought). I almost chose the Yamaha only because I liked the case better (yes, it came down to the case!). However, when I started playing around with the low notes, the low B flat on the Yamaha was totally flat (almost an entire note). Also, the lower notes on the Yamaha spoke significantly louder than the medium and high registers, so I found myself having to really control the volume in the low register. The Bulgheroni, however, was very consistent no matter what register I was in and was in tune. I did not feel like I had to control the volume in different registers, which made for smooth and easy playing. The ergonomics were great, as online reviews have pointed out. I also really like the fact that the Bulgheroni has a loop for a neck strap, in case I want to use one. Both were very similar in sound, but my dad liked the Bulgheroni better in a blind test. I almost went with the Yamaha because of name recognition. However, the Bulgheroni won me over in the end. Price was not a consideration for me between these two, but I guess I lucked out in that aspect.

My daughter is an advanced beginner, we bought her the Bulgheroni Student Oboe because it had all the keys she needed to advance, it has a good range and solid sound she can play it sweetly in the higher notes.
