 Yamaha 441 or Buffet 4062
Author: Philippe Hautbois

I’ve searched this topic and haven’t found anything about this particular Buffet.

I’m and adult amateur switching to oboe. I’ve decided to rent an intermediate oboe before I buy a professional oboe.

I have the choice between a Yamaha 441 and the Buffet Prodige 4062. I’ve seen many posts regarding the Buffet 4052 but none for the 4062.

I’m asking for some helpful advice. From what I’ve seen the Yamaha 441 is all wood, this is not the lined model. The Buffet 4062 is lined. In addition the Buffet has a few extra keys as well as the third octave key. I know at the beginning this may not make much of a difference but it is something that I’ll use as I advance.

Any thoughts regarding Yamaha vs Buffet would be appreciated.

As I said I’m switching from flute because of pain while playing. It’s a hard decision but I have a Brannen Flute that just sits in its case. Once I sell or trade the Brannen I plan to get a top of the line oboe.

Thank you for your help.

Definitely the Yamaha.

Buffet student oboes have no tone.
