Model MB Oboe

The Fossati MB oboe was developed with Michel Bénet (soloist of the Orchestra of Paris). His musical and visual aesthetic guided the striking design of the oboe’s finial. This model is very direct and responds to the slightest change in your air and inflection. This quality is due to the unique design of the upper joint.
