Student line oboes come in both plastic and wood, with wood being somewhat more expensive. Wooden instruments are generally regarded as having a superior tone quality, although in the first years of playing there is little discernible difference, as the student has not developed sufficient skills to produce a characteristic oboe tone quality. Student line oboes are equipped with the basic fingering system going down to either low B or low Bb. Low Bb models have one additional key and may be distinguished by looking at the bell of the instrument which will have a key mechanism on it. Low B models will have only a hole in the bell. The basic system is appropriate for students in the first few years of playing. More advanced students will want an enhanced key mechanism available on intermediate and professional oboes.
