This professional-level Fossati oboe was made in 2011 and kept in near-mint condition. The “MB” model is known for having a very clear tone and great response due to the unique architecture of the upper joint bore. This particular one also has a refined and warm tone with lots of vibrancy.
The designation “MB” refers to Michel Bénet, soloist of the Orchestra of Paris, who aided in the production of this model.
