Buffet Prodige BC4131 Oboe
The new Prodige BC4131 student oboe features important technical, aesthetic and acoustic improvements that will allow beginners and experienced enthusiasts to progress quickly.
Instrument technicians in the workshops of Buffet Crampon have completed an intense period of Research and Development to create an instrument with easy-to-play, accurate low notes that allow mastery of the most difficult range. Transition from one octave to another is smooth. The mechanics are extremely precise.
Mastering sound output and the controlling airflow, which are so important in the first years of study, are greatly facilitated.
Oboists will be seduced by the perfect acoustic homogeneity of this oboe.
Prodige’s sound, very rich and full, comes very close to sounding like a professional instrument.
Manufactured in the Buffet Crampon workshops in Germany, Prodige is not only reasonably priced but is also, quite simply, the ideal instrument for learning to play.
