#beginquote# I play both Saxophone and Oboe... When it comes down to it Oboe would be easier for you ( or any other flute players) bec it has similar fingerings as the flute and also bec the Oboe is a concert pitch instrument and since you don't like scales you wouldn't have to transpose up. On the other hand Oboe is a VERY pricey instument from the instrument down to the reed a GOOD begining Oboe could cost you up to 2,000 bucks and then you have to buy reeds alomost every two week and have extras on hand that cost most of the time $12. Saxopohne also would be fairly easy for a flute player bec. the fingering is also SIMILAR to that of a flute. Cheap Reeds and many styles of music can be played. Some draw backs...Well instruments can get expensive... altos. are in the key of Eb and you have to transpose up 5 steps (some people that can be really hard) Tenor is in Bb and u have to go up one step and im not really sure about bari but i deon't think its a concer pitch. Both have drawbacks and both have benifits so experiment around and see what you like the best..hope i was a little bit of help.. #endquote#
