Details

The Yamaha YOB-241 Oboe features a more economical ABS resin body oboe utilizing a simplified Conservatoire system, making it is easier to play for beginners. However, this oboe has a surprisingly precise intonation which permits students to concentrate more on developing their own musical nuances. But there is nothing 'student-like' about the rich and colorful sound. The new bore design which incorporates vertical integration is similar to that of the YOB-841 professional model, resulting in improved projection and improved tonal qualities. The 241 features a characteristically warm oboe tone which sounds very close to that of a professional instrument, so even a complete beginner will quickly develop a beautiful tone. 

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.
