We sell these oboes and I am happy to recommend them.
Several years ago we were in search of a lower cost Oboe that met these criteria:
1) sounds good
2) plays in tune (all ranges!)
3) made well - no junky workmanship!
4) has essential key work - left F, low B-flat, articulated C#, 3rd octave Key
We have sold about 50 of these oboes, to middle schools, high schools, individual college students majoring and minoring in music. We have had excellent feedback about the quality and we fully stand behind these instruments.
There are two versions:
1) all plastic LAN MEI
2) plastic upper joint / wooden lower and bell: HYBRID ACADEMY
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. We will allow you to try them and help however we can.
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!
