It features accurate intonation, a balanced response, and an exquisite tone - truly professional quality at an intermediate model price. The 431B has a semi-automatic octave system and also includes a thumb plate. The keys are hand-adjusted by experienced artisans for precise playability.
This fantastic instrument yields a rich tone and full sound, which is of a professional standard but at an affordable price. The Yamaha oboe is regularly recommended by teachers and professionals in the UK music industry. This model comes with a 400 series hard case with a durable case cover.
The ergonomic key design is based upon the Custom series for comfortable performance.
A thumb-plate key is supplied as standard in the UK.
