The Fox Renard Model 333 Protégé Oboe is an ideal choice for beginning oboe players. Featuring a high-quality plastic resin body and a modified conservatory key system with silver-plated keys, this intermediate oboe produces a warm, rich tone. This thoughtfully designed, precision-crafted oboe will inspire students for years to come.

The Fox 333 oboe features a durable plastic resin body that provides the stability and tone of wood without its fragility. Hand-reamed and finished by Fox's expert craftsmen, the resin body produces a sweet, resonant sound comparable to high-quality grenadilla wood. Resilient and low maintenance, the Fox 333's resin body ensures an instrument that will withstand the rigors of practice and performance all while inspiring a love of music.

Fox's modified conservatory key system offers intermediate oboists a full range of techniques to explore. In addition to essential keys like the left-hand F, F resonance mechanism, and low B-flat, the Fox 333 includes numerous trill keys—A-flat to B-flat, G-sharp to A, C to D, and B to C-sharp—that enable musicians to develop advanced skills. With stainless steel arbors and wire springs, and silver-plated keys, the Fox 333's key system provides a high level of responsiveness and control for aspiring oboists.

A high-quality case protects the instrument during transport and storage. An included reed case and handmade reed provide an ideal start, while a silk swab and cork grease help keep the oboe in pristine, working condition. With these and other thoughtful extras, the Fox 333 oboe package has everything needed to begin a musical journey.
