The standard oboe with a professional sound.

An economic ABS resin-body oboe that features a modified conservatoiry system, making it easier for beginners to play. The surprisingly precise intonation permits students to concentrate more on developing their own musical nuances. But there is nothing "student-like" about the rich and colorful sound. The 241 has a characteristically warm oboe tone, with a sound very close to that of a professional instrument, so even a complete beginner can quickly develop a beautiful tone.
All Yamaha wind instruments come with a limited 5-year warranty.

  • Modified conservatory system
  • Semi-automatic octave keys
  • Covered keys
  • Trill keys: C#-D#, F#-G#, A#-B, B-C#, right C-D
  • 4 cork, 15 felt pads
  • Matte-finish ABS resin body
  • Silver-plated nickel silver keys

Why play a great instrument from the start? Order the 241 today.

There are no shortcuts to making a decent oboe

By Peter VandeBurgt

from British Columbia, Canada

Comments about Yamaha YOB-241 Series Student Oboe:

This instrument has a lovely tone. The keywork is somewhat on the light side but will hold out. The tone holes did not have any undercut on the new instrument I rented. The synthetic body is great for playing in any temperature or humidity. On my instrument, the middle C# was hard to speak. I adjusted all the relevant keys and still could not achieve a clear response. The position of the middle D key is lower than the right hand F natural key. This caused me to tough the F natural key and create a leak when playing C#. I have played Loree, Selmer and Thibeau and am waiting for my Covey. I think that these professional instruments are easier to play.

This is a good oboe if you're shopping for a beginner oboist. I played it until high school.
