New versatile "American" style oboes for comfortable playing

Yamaha has renewed its "441" series with additional keys and functions to increase comfort in performance. The addition of the third octave key helps players perform various musical pieces without stress or difficulty. Additional playability improvements come from the new all-cork pads and strap ring. Get versatility to match your needs with the new YOB-441MT.

New Features

Newly designed bell with a resonance key
The bell bore has been redesigned to improve the intonation of the middle range. In addition, the Low-Bb resonance key improves the intonation of the low-Bb.

Third octave key
Adding a third octave key stabilizes both the articulation and the intonation in the third octave.

Low B-C# trill key
Easily perform a low B-C# trill just by opening and pressing down the B key while holding the C# key.

All cork pads reduce pad noise.

Strap ring
The thumbrest has a strap ring. Using a strap improves playability by reducing pressure on the right-hand thumb which can put extra on the shoulder and the neck.

Easy assembly reduces the risk of instrument damage
When assembling wooden instruments, extra care is needed between the upper and lower joints as too much pressure can cause damage. By reinforcing the sections with a metal tenon and receiver, it is easier to assemble the instrument.

Duet+ Upper Joint - Insert molding improves durability and resonance of wooden bodies
Using patented technology, the injection-molded inner bore is designed to resist cracking while stabilizing the bore for improved consistency and durability. The upper joint is drilled slightly larger around the bore and toneholes. Thermoplastic ABS resin is injected into the cavity, forming an ideal inner bore. It preserves as much as 90% of the wooden material, and its appearance looks the same as conventional all-wooden models.

Resin-molded toneholes
Upper joint toneholes (except for the octave vents) are molded simultaneously with the resin bore.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
