An expressive bassoon made by Fox in 1974. It has solid intonation and a clear beautiful voice.
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 an older pro level instrument at a reasonable price and would work well for advanced students, doublers, and adult enthusiasts.
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 1970’s 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 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.
