Fox Renard Model 333 Protege Oboe
The Model 333 is Fox's least expensive oboe. Fox doesn't make any "cheap" oboes. This instrument is ideal for developing a student through middle school, into and even through high school. It has every key the student will need to develop on the instrument, and sounds and plays at a level that will thrill the student and his or her director.
Fox oboes are quickly gaining the same stellar reputation as Fox bassoons. Outstanding craftsmanship and meticulous care make Fox oboes the choice of students, teachers, and professionals alike.
The Fox Model 333 has a high quality plastic resin body that has been hand reamed and finished by Fox craftsmen. It features silver-plated posts, bands, and bell rings, stainless steel arbors and wire springs. It is equipped with nickel silver keys with 18% nickel silver hinge tubing and heavy silver plating.
Its handmade simplified conservatory mechanism includes a left hand F key, F# key tab, and a solid (non-articulated) C# key. Cork pads are featured on low C and above, as are Teflon-tipped stainless steel adjusting screws. Accessories include a sturdy plush-lined instrument case, reed and reed case, screwdriver, silk swab and cork grease. Individually hand tuned to A-440 pitch at 72 degrees Fahrenheit, with maximum resonance and projection.
