About The Yamaha YOB-441 Intermediate Oboe

The Yamaha YOB-441 is made of the finest quality aged and seasoned grenadilla wood for a rich professional sound. This is the same material as used on our Custom models and has been carefully crafted in a similar manner. The size and placement of the toneholes is also the same, giving even and accurate intonation and making the 441 the most professional sounding intermediate model you will ever find.


  • 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.
