The S20C Oboe is responsive, lightweight, and easy to play.  It has all of the necessary keywork to learn proper technique but not so much to be heavy and cumbersome.  The closed vents on the keys make this particularly useful for younger players.  


This is a fully synthetic instrument with a slightly simplified key system, but it does include the left hand F and the low Bb keys.
