Designed with a slightly narrower European-style bore, the Yamaha YOB-831 Custom Oboe is handcrafted to ensure optimized balance, smooth keywork, and a pure and beautifully intimate tone. A favorite among professionals and serious students, the Yamaha YOB-831 oboe features select grenadilla wood wth an Ebonite lining and silver-plated keys.
Yamaha YOB-831 Custom Series Professional Oboe
Key of C. Grenadilla wood body and bell; full conservatory system; left-hand F; fork F resonance key; 3rd octave key is standard; silver-plated nickel silver keys; slightly narrower European-style bore design; hand-tapered, undercut toneholes.
The upper joint body is drilled out slightly larger, where a thin ebonite pipe with an oboe bore is adhered. Ebonite is an excellent material for wind instruments, as is proven with top-grade mouthpieces for saxophones and clarinets as well as bassoon liners.
Every tone-hole (except metal octave vents) is lined with POM resin for air-tight, stable contact between each pad. In the rare event that the wood should crack, the damage to the tone-hole profile and intonation would be minimal thanks to the inserts.
All Yamaha wind instruments come with a limited 5-year warranty.
