YAMAHA YOB-441

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

Features a modified conservatory system for the advancing student.

Newly designed, highly polished bore

The new bore design, which incorporates vertical integration is similar to that of the YOB-841 professional model. This results in improved projection and improved tonal quality.

Handworked keys

Skilled artisans braze and adjust all keys on Yamaha oboes by hand to optimize the balance of each instrument.

Newly designed undercut tone holes

Also similar to the YOB-841 professional model, the new tone hole design provides the player with a smooth even response and improved intonation.

Nickel silver bell ring

The bell ring increases effective density of the bell for a quicker response and a more focused sound.

Stainless steel French taper screws

As a result of using stainless steel, the screws will be more resistant to corrosiion and will ensure a smooth, reliable action. The French taper design will allow for precise adjustment.

Stainless steel needle springs

Durability, key balance and a more comfortable feel are all benefits of using stainless steel as the spring material.

Available options

ABS Resin body and bell (YOB-441A); Injection molded inner bore in the upper joint using Yamaha Duet Plus technology (YOB-441M).
