Ideal for young oboists
There are a number of attributes that make this model particularly good for the young beginner. Firstly, the S10 has a completely closed hole system of keywork. This makes things an awful lot easier for smaller, untrained hands and does the smaller spacing between the tone holes. Secondly, for a solid wood model, the S10 is surprisingly light. A professional oboe generally weighs in the region of 0.72kg whereas this model weighs just 0.54kg. This may not sound like a lot, but it will make all the difference for a young player especially when the school orchestra beckons!
