The Buffet Légende Hybrid Oboe features a Green LinE composite upper joint, grenadilla wood lower joint and bell, and a completely reworked bore.

Introduced by Buffet in the mid 1990s, Green LinE is a composite material produced by combining grenadilla powder with carbon fibres. It can withstand extreme variations in temperature and humidity and is less prone to cracking than instruments with a natural grain.

The Légende Hybrid oboe’s combination of materials allows for a more complete instrument - the security and projection of the Green LinE is subtly balanced by the warm tonal quality of the wood.

Therefore, the Légende Hybrid provides real stability from one room to another, from one season to another, from one reed to another . . . allowing the musician to gain freedom and comfort in their expression.

Further, the Légende Hybrid produces a particularly warm sound from the grenadilla lower joint and bell, while its Green LinE upper joint provides additional projection, making it the ideal instrument in the orchestra, as well as for solo repertoire.

The Légende Hybrid oboe: An instrument full of energy and charm, allowing the musician to push the boundaries of oboe design, performance and expression!
