Description: Oboe - Yamaha YOB-411 Wood Oboe
This is Yamaha's intermediate oboe. It is made of Grenadilla wood and has silver plated keywork. It has the forked-F resonance key and the left F-key, but does not have low Bb-resonance or 3rd octave. It also has the C# - D# ; F# - G# ; A# - B ; Ab - Bb ; B - C# ; C - D trill keys.
It was purchased new in Feb. of 2001 from the Woodwind&Brasswind and has only had one owner. It is perfect for the advancing high school student. I picked up oboe in 10th grade, and purchased this instrument halfway through my junior year - it got me through 1.5 years of high school and 2 years of college - as an oboe major. I am selling it to fund the purchase of a new Loree to last me into a professional career.
It has been lovingly cared for and has no cracks or wear to the plating. there is a very small nick on the inner rim of the bell, otherwise is in perfect condition. It comes with original french style case with leather cover.
It was repaired/tuned-up last year by famed oboe tech Carlos Coleho and has been tweaked and had minor adjustments done as needed by my professor.
This oboe sells new for 2300+, discounted, from Woodwind&Brasswind and other large retailers.
