Achieve Beautiful Silky Tone With The Yamaha YOB-841 Custom Oboe

The YOB-841 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 and king-rosewood body are available on request.

Played by some of the top American oboists, this custom oboe combines a dark silky tone with a focused center.

  • 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
