YOB-241 Yamaha Standard Oboe

The Most Professional Student Oboes Ever Made!

Durable plastic oboe designed for the beginning student

This is a more economical ABS resin body oboe which features a simplified Conservatoire system, making it is easier to play for beginners. The surprisingly precise intonation permits students to concentrate more on developing their own musical nuances. But there is nothing 'student-like' about the rich and colorful sound. 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.

 


Features

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.

YOB-441A Yamaha Intermediate Oboe

Yamaha oboes achieve a clear sound quality and superb intonation by dramatically improving the precision and stability of the bore. Also to cope with various durability issues inherent in wooden wind instruments, Duet+ models employ innovative techniques to form a protective layer next to the air column. The combination of precious wood and state-of -the-art resin is not simply a "Duet" of tradition and technology - it's a "Plus" advantage indeed!


Features

Insert Molding
Using patented technology, the injection-molded inner bore is designed to resist cracking while also stabilizing the bore which adds consistency and durability. The upper joint body is drilled out slightly larger around the bore and tone-holes. Thermoplastic ABS resin is injected into the cavity, instantly forming the inner shape of an oboe. It is designed to preserve as much as 90% of the wooden portion, while its natural appearance is hardly distinguishable from conventional all-wooden models.

Toneholes
Upper-joint tone-holes (except metal octave vents) are molded simultaneously with the resin bore.

Joint Tenon
The upper joint tenon is also formed as an extension to the resin bore. This ensures smooth connection between the joints even under moist conditions.

Marking
The gold-colored trademark logo is stamped on the back of the upper joint.
