The term Wood Composite refers to the body material used on Nobel Instruments. It is a mix of grenadilla wood powder, epoxies and binders. The mixture is injection molded into the body parts. This technology is highly effective for lowering production costs and the results are body parts that are identical in dimension and tonal color. Ultimately, wood composite instruments are as durable as plastic but sound like wood.
This term refers to 2 Nobel instruments (NO1H and NEHH) where the top joints are made out of Wood Composite material and the lower two joints are made out of Grenadilla wood. The hybrid design eliminates the cracking problems associated with top joints, and gives our Nobel Instruments exceptionally rich sound qualities.
The trial period for instruments is one week. Customers are responsible for shipping costs both ways for each instrument. We won’t charge you for the return instrument on an instrument you decide to keep!
Typical UPS / FEDEX ground shipping costs: Oboes, $35 each way, English Horns, $45 each way, and Bassoons, $75 each way. Instruments are shipped with “Adult Signature Required” and insured.
We will need the name, address, telephone number, email address and a credit card to put on file. The credit card will be used to pay for the shipping costs and will be charged once the instrument (s) are returned.
If you decide to keep an instrument, used ones are payable by check only and new ones are payable by either check or credit card.
