"The Howarth S10, a long-established student model oboe, is recommended by leading teachers and chosen by Education Authorities and Music Services throughout the UK. It is recognised as the best student English system oboe available and indeed many of today's professional players began lessons on a Howarth "B Model" [predecessor to the S10] oboe.
"The instrument is particularly suitable for students because the design specification includes close finger spacing for the smaller hand and the instrument is light in weight for ease of handling. A professional model oboe can weigh up to 0.72 kg; the Howarth S10 weighs only 0.54 kg. The popularity of the oboe has increased dramatically in recent years and we have found that students are starting at younger ages than ever before. In order to help younger players, the S10B is an all covered hole model."
In excellent condition. Checked in our workshop prior to sale.
