Durable plastic oboe designed for the beginning 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 qualities.

Newly designed undercut tone hole design

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

Nickel-silver bell ring

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

French taper pivot screws

French taper pivot screws are designed for precise adjustment and increased longevity.

Stainless steel springs

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