I currently have an Artley student oboe, but as of tomorrow, I'll be playing on a Moennig Philharmonic full conservatory(w/ 3rd octave key) professional oboe.

Those Linton EH's can be hidden gems - at least the ones made by Malerne in France can be.Fox 400 Oboe and my own reeds, generally from Rigotti shaped and gouged cane on Sierra and recycled Staples.
The Fox 400 is a really nice instrument I must say. My teacher didn't realize it wasn't a Loree for a while! Granted...A Loree has made my bad reeds sound good lol, I'm happy with the Fox. Working on buying a Linton English Horn from a friend right now.
Oh? I love the sound of the English horn. My only experience playing one is once getting to play my teacher's. Although I loved the fact that I was playing it, I do remember it being rather uncomfortable.What a lovely instrument. My wife loved her Howarth English Horn, but not how far she had to stretch her fingers to play it.
