Available in traditional grenadilla wood and in the innovative Green Line material. Please specify when ordering.
With the Green Line oboe, professional oboe players will never worry about cracks again. A revolution in the history of woodwind instruments, the Buffet BC3613G, BC3643G oboe (The Green Line) can be toured around the world and will withstand the extreme temperature changes associated with different climates.
The Green Line is composed of 95% granulated Grenadilla wood, 5% polycarbonate fibre and a specially formulated epoxy resin. This mixture is heated at very high temperatures and formed into billets, which then follow the same manufacturing processes as the 100% Grenadilla wood BC 3613, 3643 model.
The Green Line material has the same acoustic properties as natural wood and will not crack because there is no grain and is, therefore, not under pressure.
