This top level Fox Renard bassoon was made in 2004. We just cleaned, oiled, adjusted, and play tested this bassoon here in our shop and it’s ready to play in every way. Used Fox 240’s are hard to come by. This one is a nice example of a sought after instrument.
The red maple wood body is in very good condition with no boot rot, and no tone hole issues. The original red finish from Fox is in average condition with a few spots of wear which have been attended to. See the photos for the standard wear spot on the wing joint.
The German system silver plated keywork system has just been cleaned and oiled. It has some new pads and all the pads are in excellent condition. This bassoon features metal tone hole inserts, lined wing joint, lined small bore on boot, body lock, metal bell ring, crutch and crutch assembly. It has high D and high E, 6 rollers, and a right hand whisper key lock.
The included Fox *CVX* #3 bocal is in excellent condition. The instrument seems to play nicely with this slightly longer bocal. The Fox pro hard shell case and fitted Altieri cover are in excellent condition.
