I’ve been having this craving to learn to play the oboe. And then I saw how much they cost……….


  1. Well, there is always the harp. $$$$$$$ I dated a harpist in college. Her annual budget for strings was more than my budget for food.

  2. And of course there’s also the carting around of a harp. No thanks!

  3. The last time I was doing a gig with a bassoonist who was getting a Heckel she was paying over $40k and waiting at least a year. This was a few years back, so I have no idea of the going rate.
