A professional model oboe can weigh up to 0.72 kg, the Howarth S10 weighs only 0.54 kg. The popularity of the oboe has increased dramatically in recent years and we have found that students are starting at younger ages than ever before. In order to help younger players, the S10 is an all covered hole model.
