Why we love it…

Our Duet+ system in the YOB-431MBE Mk II Oboe precisely lines the Grenadilla tonewood of the upper joint of the oboe with state-of-the-art resin. The lining gives you an extra layer of protection for the wooden body without losing the Grenadilla's fantastic, characteristic tone. Improvement can be found in the playability, durability and consistency of the instrument as well. - Abi

Overview

Precision-crafted for a warm tone, superb playability and longevity, our YOB-431MBE features a semi-automatic octave system with thumbplate. The YOB-431MBE also features our patented Duet system - a precisely shaped ABS resin insert sits within the grenadilla tonewood of the upper joint, eliminating disadvantages of an all-wood body without losing the grenadilla's characteristic tone.

Features

Duet System

Using patented technology, the injection-molded inner bore is designed to resist cracking while also stabilising the bore which adds consistency and durability. The upper joint body is drilled out slightly larger around the bore and tone-holes. Thermoplastic ABS resin is injected into the cavity, instantly forming the inner shape of an oboe. It is designed to preserve as much as 90% of the wooden portion, while its natural appearance is hardly distinguishable from conventional all-wooden models.

The result is an incredible oboe which looks and sounds like an all-wood instrument but has improved playability, consistency and durability.

Tone Holes

Upper-joint tone holes (except metal octave vents) are molded simultaneously with the resin bore.

Joint Tenon

The upper joint tenon is also formed as an extension to the resin bore. This ensures smooth connection between the joints even under moist conditions.

Marking

The gold coloured trademark logo is stamped on the back of the upper joint.
