The JP181 Oboe is a highly popular and well performing full dual system Oboe capable of taking novice players to the top of their ability. Featuring a high level of specification for a student model, the JP181 comes highly recommended by Max Spiers of the Royal Ballet Sinfonia. Having personally tested the instrument, Max said "the triumph of these instruments is that they really ring. The natural sound of them encourages a warm tone and the scale is even and smooth. They slur all the awkward intervals effortlessly and feel nicely stable."
The JP181 features good quality white leather padding and a strong, well designed keywork. Both variants include an adjustable thumb rest as standard and silver plated plateau key throughout. Constructed from ebonite, the JP181 is lightweight, durable and requires less maintenance compared to wooden models.
The JP181 C Oboe is supplied with high quality case with hard cased interior and a canvas outer covering. The case includes an internal dust cover and small compartment for reeds and other small accessories. The case is supplied with a comfortable shoulder strap and external storage pocket for storing music and larger accessories.
All JP Instruments are covered by a comprehensive 2 year warranty against manufacturing defects.
