OVERVIEW

Student oboe with many professional features.

An innovative concept in oboe design, the the Yamaha YOB-441P combines the best of features of both other models for an oboe with rich warm granadilla tone, yet which is highly resistant to cracking. The lower joint and bell are of the same select quality grenadilla as the 441, but the upper joint is made of matte finish ABS resin for crack-proof durability. This model was created for players who prefer the natural resonance of grenadilla wood, but perform in conditions of less than ideal temperature and humidity.

Trill keys are C#-D#, F#-G#, Ab-Bb, A#-B, B-C#, left C-D, right C-D, and the auxiliary keys include a left-hand F key, and a Fork F resonance key. It has an American bore style with 19 cork and 2 felt pads, a Simplified Conservatoire system (semi-automatic octave system), and silver-plated nickel silver keys. A 400 eries case is included.

Great Oboe

Comments about Yamaha YOB-441 Series Intermediate Oboe:

I'm in 8th grade and I've been using a 25 year old Selmer that the school provided. Me and my classmate were the first oboists for a very long time since the school opened. The band director got us two new Yamaha 441A's and it sounded great. I have only played it with the band but I haven't got a chance to hear what it sounds like individually. Only complaint right now is that the keyword isn't all that comfortable, but I'll get used to it.

Awesome oboe!

Comments about Yamaha YOB-441 Series Intermediate Oboe:

I rented this oboe when I first started learning oboe. It's a great instrument. Probably not the best for beginners, not that there's anything wrong with it for beginners it's probably not wise to spend this much on something you might not continue. For advancing students, it's perfect. I love that it has the left hand F and the forked F resonance key. I recommend this oboe to all of my advancing oboe students looking to pursure the instrument as a major in college.

Not what you think it is...

Comments about Yamaha YOB-441 Series Intermediate Oboe:

Don't get this oboe. Spare yourself the frustration and just get the fox student model. The service on WWBW may be great, (good jod guys), but the oboe isn't. It has terrible intonation and tone problems. If you're looking to continue music all your life, (me) just get on with a Loree and not this one.

Excellent Investment

Comments about Yamaha YOB-441 Series Intermediate Oboe:

My son was ready for an upgrade from his Selmer student oboe. His instructor recommended looking at the Woodwind & Brasswind's website. Considering our budget, he advised us to get the all Grenadilla Intermediate Yamaha oboe. It has been a wonderful instrument with an excellent tone. My son since has received a scholarship for which he was runner up last year. Additionally, WWBW was accurate in gauging the time period needed to receive this custom oboe. They kept me up to date with the status in construction, and then when it was shipped from the factory. During that waiting period, WWBW ran a 10%discount special for new orders. They extended this special discount to me even after my order was placed, simply because I requested it. The company also followed up with us to see how the instrument was meeting our standards. Both the quality of the instrument and the service of WWBW has been superior.
