Yamaha YOB-441A Oboe; ABS Resin Body and Bell

The same design as the 441 has been crafted with a body made entirely out of durable, maintenance-free ABS resin. This artificial material offers a sound as close to that of grenadilla as possible, yet is free from the dangers of cracking when played in difficult climatic conditions such as extreme dryness. The body has a matte finish which is almost indistinguishable from that of natural grenadilla.

 

Features

  • Maintenance Free Material

The YOB-441A feature a special wood-like matte finish on their ABS resin bodies.

  • 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.
