Dear Geoffrey,



Thank you for your suggestions.  I came down with a flu as well.



I shall explore which Intermediate Oboe to buy as I do believe it would be a sound investment.  I wonder how you rate the Howarth S20, Yamaha YOB-441, and Buffet 4151?



Happy holiday and a speedy recovery.



Regards,

Esther
