The Prodige Performance C oboe features important technical, aesthetic and acoustic improvements that will allow motivated students to progress quickly and experienced players to realize their musical vision.

Instrument technicians in the workshops of Buffet Crampon have completed an intense period of Research and Development to create an instrument with easy-to-play, accurate low notes that allow mastery of the most difficult range. Transitioning from one octave to another is smooth and the mechanics are extremely precise.

Prodige’s sound is rich and full, and comes very close to sounding like a professional instrument. Experienced oboists will be charmed by the acoustic homogeneity of this oboe, and students will quickly develop control over the difficult lower register.


Enhanced plateau key design brings a flexibility and feeling close to those of Buffet Crampon professional instruments

More ergonomic placement of spatulas and plateau keys means more comfortable playing for all hand sizes

Large-headed adjustment screws mean more precise adjustments

Octave pips in German nickel silver

Protective satin varnish for body and bell finish shows the wood grain

Acoustics that are close to the professional range: ease of projection, pitch, homogeneity andflexibility

Body in African blackwood and Luracast bore make the instrument crack-resistant
