Yamaha oboes achieve a clear sound quality and superb intonation by dramatically improving the precision and stability of the bore. Also to cope with various durability issues inherent in wooden wind instruments, Duet+ models employ innovative techniques to form a protective layer next to the air column.

  • Insert Molding: The injection-molded inner bore is designed to resist cracking while also stabilizing 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.
  • Toneholes: 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-colored trademark logo is stamped on the back of the upper joint.

Cosmo Music's Quality Assurance:

Wind Instruments

  1. Unpack instrument removing all corks used to stabilize keys during shipment.
  2. Leave the instrument to allow the pads to "relax".
  3. A visual inspection is done to ensure the finish is at factory standards.
  4. Lubricate corks with factory approved grease.
  5. Check and adjust the fit of components to ensure a firm, but not excessive pressure is needed to assemble; out of the box many corks are too tight and the player could easily cause damage to parts by having to apply too much pressure.
  6. Inspect the key action.
  7. Check pad coverage and adjust where necessary.
  8. Check all key combinations for proper adjustment.
  9. Play-test each instrument throughout its entire range to confirm all adjustments are correct.
  10. All instruments are played with the technician's own mouthpiece or head joint, unless it is not appropriate (in the case in which the mouthpiece or headjoint is unique to the instrument, they are thoroughly cleaned after play-testing).
  11. The case is checked for proper fit.
  12. Factory supplied accessories are inspected to ensure all are present.
  13. Large saxophone keys may be refitted with shipping corks to increase stability for transit.
  14. The instrument is repacked as it was received.
  15. Technician signs the tag to confirm that all details have been completed.
