Howarth S40C Conservatoire (French) System Oboe with 3rd Octave Key : Standard

Graduate model, designed for the diploma level player.


The S40C intermediate series is designed for the more advanced player, but remains comparatively light in weight and is therefore suitable for accomplished young musicians. This oboe includes many essential features found on a professional oboe, with mechanisms for almost every trill.


This model is also available with a synthetic lining of the top section of the top joint to prevent cracking in demanding climatic conditions. There is an additional cost for this option of £150 + VAT. Please email oboe@howarth.uk.com for further details and availability.
