Introducing the John Packer JP081 student oboe outfit

The JP081 is an impressive entry level oboe designed for young players and beginners. It features a British thumb plate reduced keywork system with manual octaves and silver plated plateau keys. By doing away with many of the complex linkages the instrument is lighter and less likely to get damaged. The reduced number of keys means that the lowest note available is a B rather than a Bb, but apart from that the missing keys are simply for shortcut fingerings and tone improvement automation which players are unlikely to need until grade 3/4 at least.

The practical and cost-effective choice for learners

The ABS resin body isn't affected by temperature or humidity and is impervious to cracking which is a common problem with wooden instruments. Despite its relative cheapness, it responds just like a wooden alternative, with a remarkably sweet tone and large dynamic range. As with all John Packer outfits this instrument is supplied with a high quality moulded carry case.

What are the different types of oboe?

Thumplate oboes are widely used in the UK as starting instruments. They feature simplified keywork and a narrower bore to make them more accessible for younger players. Dual system oboes have more advanced keywork and generally a bigger bore, and are intended for players of a higher standard doing solo or orchestral work. Conservatoire system oboes are mainly found in Continental Europe and the US, and have a different fingering technique altogether which is also intended for more advanced players.

What's in the outfit?
