The YOB-441A Step-Up / Intermediate Oboe features the same bore, tonehole size, and tonehole placement of the Yamaha YOB-841 professional oboe,  giving even and accurate intonation and making the 441 the most 'Professional' sounding intermediate model you will ever find.  In addition, this model is crafted 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.

Includes 400 Series Case.
