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
