Play The Choice Of The Masters With The Yamaha YOB-841T Custom Oboe - 3rd Octave Key

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

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.

  • 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 Toneholes - Precise, even intonation and response
  • Nickel-Silver Bell Ring - Increases effective density of the bell for improved response and tone
