Played by some of the top American oboists, this custom oboe combines a dark silky tone with a focused center. The Yamaha YOB841 comes equipped with a Philadelphia D key - an extra screw that permits fine adjustments to the high D for improved tone and tuning. Hand-tapered, undercut tone holes provide precise, even intonation and response. Skilled artisans braze and adjust all keys by hand to optimize the balance. A Nickel-silver bell ring increases effective density of the bell for improved response and tone. Excellent intonation, tonal balance, and resistance comes from a newly designed, highly polished bore.
