THE HOWARTH OBOE FOR ADVANCED PLAYERS
The S50c oboe has been designed for advanced musicians to enjoy the sound and feel of a professional instruments at an advantageous price. It is based on our prestige instruments, with a full conservatory platueu system and an adapted XL oboe bore. It uses the same bell as an XL oboe to give a centered tone and enhanced projection. The S50c benefits from selective undercutting and voicing of the toneholes to enrich the tonal quality.
It features metal socket liners and metal-sleeved tenons to provide a barrier against the moisture that can collect in the sockets. Additionally, this helps to secure the alignment of the mechanisms across the joints and provides long-lasting protection. The external dimensions of the S50c oboe are the same as the S40c to keep the instrument light in weight.
This model is also available with a synthetic lining of the top section of the top joint to prevent cracking in demanding climatic conditions.
