There are no shortcuts to making a decent oboe


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.
