With the experience gained from international soloists, Buffet Crampon is continually improving the ergonomics and acoustics of its instruments.
The Prestige oboes come in automatic and semiautomatic versions; a thumbplate is available as an option.
They distinguish themselves by their open yet firm character, allowing musicians of all backgrounds to take on any repertoire, whether orchestral, chamber music, or as a soloist.
The fluid, dynamic ease and comfort of Buffet Crampon oboes are widely appreciated.

This model is available in "Green-Line" material. Green-Line material has the same tonal performance as wood. It is made from Grenadilla powder (95%) and carbon fiber. The Grenadilla powder is obtained by crushing smaller left over pieces of Grenadilla into the dust. This helps eliminate wood that is otherwise wasted. The 2 materials are then pressure formed into the new Green-Line material. There are many benefits to this material. Foremost is the fact that the Green-Line material is stable and does not warp or shift with climate. The material also eliminates the risk of traditional cracks.
