"Buffet Crampon is firmly fixed, through its history and its name, in the tradition of the manufacture of top of the range wind instruments. Since 1825 the brand has developed around a know-how of exceptional instrument manufacture. This heritage remains the guarantee of recognition of our products. Thus, for nearly 200 years, musicians have continued to find artistic excellence and the passion of music with Buffet Crampon instruments".
"The student line of Buffet Crampon oboes covers the whole range, from instruments specially designed for children to fully equipped models. Standing out among the line’s strong points is a body in African blackwood (Grenadilla) with a resin-lined bore, making the instrument highly crack resistant".
"The thumbplate system, as well as the combination of semi-automatic conservatoire and thumbplate systems, corresponds to the British school of playing in particular. The keywork is precise and reliable. Thanks to the bore lined in Luracast, these oboes are very crack-resistant".
Looking for a step-up oboe? Then the Buffet BC4151 Oboe is the one for you! This oboe is in excellent cosmetic and functional shape. Before arriving at our shop, the oboe had a few modifications in its lifetime to help with playability. Most notably an extra key extension has been added to the low B key, enabling the player to play low B and Bb with the left pinky only and without having to close the right-hand low C key. The BC4151 also comes with a removable thumb cushion that helps give extra padding to the right thumb when holding the instrument; the oboe has a standard fixed thumb rest (that the padding attaches to). Comes with a Protec ProPac case.
Our professional oboe technician has serviced this instrument. The keys have been adjusted and oiled and the fork F and C# pads have been replaced. This oboe is ready to be played!
