This pro level bassoon was made in 1998 and played in the Marine concert band. It had service recently at the Fox factory. The tone is dense, clear, refined, and beautiful.
We only needed to lightly dust this bassoon here in our shop and it’s ready to play in every way. This is a classic pro level instrument and would work well for advanced students, doublers, adult enthusiasts, and pro players.
The maple wood body is in excellent condition with some light scratches in the finish, as should be expected.
The German system silver plated keywork is in excellent condition with virtually no wear. There is a ferrule in place for use by a balance hanger. There is a small hand etched mark under the boot cap “AEJC Band”.
This bassoon features metal tone hole inserts, lined wing joint, lined small bore on boot, new style in-line body lock. It has high D and high E, 10 rollers, and a left hand whisper key lock. It has the optional right hand thumb A♭- B♭ trill key.
The Fox *CVC* #2 R2 bocal, and Fox *CVC* #3 R2 bocal are in excellent condition. The Fox pro semi-oval case is in excellent plus condition, the fitted cloth case cover with shoulder strap is in excellent condition with some marks of use.
