Awesome oboe!!

By

Comments about Fox Model 400 Professional Oboe:

I played this oboe as a school owned, and now that I've graduated am looking to buy one for myself. Its a terrific oboe and the ease of play is amazing. No more straining to get notes out like on many other oboes. I love this oboe, its really really great!!!

compares even to loree

By 

from Denver, CO USA

Comments about Fox Model 400 Professional Oboe:

I found this oboe to have amazing intonation, and tone. I was previously playing a Jupiter 355, so I expected a dramatic difference in the quality, however I was blown away by this oboe. As a "come behind" musican my tone quality was what draged me down. This oboe brought my tone quality up, and I have gone from last to first oboe in band. Unbelievable oboe!

Extremely decent

By 

from Alabama

Comments about Fox Model 400 Professional Oboe:

I enjoy playing a Fox Oboe because of the compass scale of the keywork, especially to include a triple octave key and a low B-flat key...it has a beautiful sound and is extremely versatile with nearly every player who come across playing one. I'm hoping to receive one for Christmas this year!

A fine oboe

By 

from Massachusetts

Comments about Fox Model 400 Professional Oboe:

The Fox 400 has a very appealing sound and a fine scale. It is superior to all but the top-line oboes (Loree, Laubin, Covey) and is a much better bargain. Suitable for any player up to conservatory level.
