Suitable for: Everyone
This expressive, mature bassoon was made by Fox in 1974 and kept in very good condition. The intonation is excellent and the tone is cultured and beautiful. The price has been lowered dramatically at the request of the owner for a quick sale. There is nothing wrong, just a desire to find a buyer soon.
Brian Charles just cleaned, oiled, adjusted, and play-tested this bassoon here in our shop and it’s ready to play in every way. This is a pro-level instrument at a reasonable price.
The maple wood body is in excellent condition with no boot rot and no tone hole issues. The original jet-black finish from Fox is in average condition with wear limited to the usual spots and the usual small nicks and dents.
The German system silver-plated keywork system has just been cleaned and oiled. It has the classic light pitting of the chrome finish seen on many 1970s Fox bassoons. It has some new pads and good-condition pads throughout.
This bassoon features metal tone hole water inserts, lined wing joint, lined small bore on the boot, new style in-line body lock, plastic bell ring, crutch, and crutch assembly. It has high D, 4 rollers, and a right-hand whisper key lock.
The Fox *CVC* #2 bocal is in excellent condition. An almost new ProTec integral case is included.
