The Howarth S40C +TP is a graduate model instrument designed for intermediate to advanced level players.

Lighter in weight than our professional model oboes, the keywork on the S40C has many of the same features as a professional level instrument with the dual-system allowing a variety of fingerings and trills.

An ideal upgrade from our student models, the S40C will comfortably take players past grade 8 to advanced level.
