The Yamaha YOB-841 (American Bore) Custom Professional Grenadilla Wood Oboe features an 'open' bore configuration optimized to match 'American' style reeds. This inner bore shape is complemented by tapered tone-holes with conical undercutting for a dark silky tone with a focused center. This model was developed in close cooperation with the principal oboists of some of America's top orchestras. Third octave key, ebonite lined upper joint, and king-rosewood body are available on request.

**This oboe may be purchased with or without a third octave key.

**Duet+ versions feature ebonite lined upperjoints to stabilize the wood from cracks or leaks

Handworked keys

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

Newly designed, highly polished bore

Excellent intonation, tonal balance, and resistance

Hand-tapered, undercut tone holes

Precise, even intonation and response

Nickel-silver bell ring

Increases effective density of the bell for improved response and tone

Philadelphia D key

An extra screw that permits fine adjustments to the high D for improved tone and tuning

DUET+ Ebonite Lining

The upper joint body is drilled out slightly larger, where a thin ebonite pipe with an oboe bore is adhered. Ebonite is an excellent material for wind instruments, as is proven with top-grade mouthpieces for saxophones and clarinets as well as bassoon liners. Much knowledge was derived from our own bassoon manufacturing, and with further engineering, Yamaha successfully developed oboes with the reliability and warmth of wood.

DUET+ Toneholes

Every tone-hole (except metal octave vents) is lined with POM resin for air-tight, stable contact between each pad. In the rare event that the wood should crack, the damage to the tone-hole profile and intonation would be minimal thanks to the inserts.

DUET+ Engraving

The trademark logo is engraved on the back of the upper joint.

Deluxe multi-functional case bag

Oboists must always carry all kinds of reed adjustment tools and accessories. The newly designed pockets pack almost everything you need for a rehearsal. The A4-sized holder on the reverse side will carry a B4 music file vertically. The shoulder strap and handles offer a choice between carrying it vertically or horizontally.
