We use K Ges. I think they are a great alternative to expensive instruments for students at the MS level. My only complaint is that they are rather stuffy in the low register. Fox oboes are free-blowing and comfortable, while K Ges feel more like a very stuffy Loree.
If you have the budget, I'd go with Fox for your advanced students (HS) and MS top group. For beginners, K Ges are fine.
My two cents.
Do any of you have experience with this brand? I know nothing of it except that I've played on a couple of them at our middle school.
Wood bottom joint & bell. Resin top joint. Full conservatory key work and the prices I've seen on the internet are almost half that of Fox oboes of the same type.
Are they as good as Fox? Durable? Are replacement parts plentiful? Anyone info to share would be much appreciated!
