Yamaha 441M DUET+ Wooden Oboe
Yamaha YOB-441M DUET+ wooden oboe for sale. This is the most expensive of the three 441 versions, being the one with the lined upper joint to resist cracking. Has a few key upgrades from beginner oboes: F-resonance key, F# key tab, and the all-important left-F key. Excellent condition with almost no wear at all, pads in exceptional condition as seen in the photos, just through the shop where it was adjusted and regulated. Wood has no cracks, chips, or repairs. It should play perfectly, with the caveat that oboes hate airplanes, delivery trucks, and cold weather, so they sometime need minor tweaking after shipping. Comes in the Yamaha case with zippered case cover. The cork grease pictured is for local pickup only; it cannot be shipped due to postal regulations. Sells at the online discounters for $3,557 new, so save more than a thousand dollars, and snatch this one up before the Christmas rush!
