This pro level bassoon was made in 2003 and played regularly and with care. It’s a 2 owner instrument with very good intonation and a beautiful upper register.
We 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 and would work well for advanced students, doublers, adult enthusiasts, and pro players.
The maple wood body is in excellent with no boot rot, and no tone hole issues. The only fault is a few “chips” in the finish on the obverse of the bell, as seen in the photos.
The German system silver plated keywork system has just been cleaned and oiled. It’s in excellent plus condition.
This bassoon features metal tone hole inserts, lined wing joint, lined small bore on boot, new style in-line 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 Fox *CVX* #1 and Fox *CVX* #3 bocals are in excellent condition. The Fox pro case and fitted cloth cover are in excellent condition.
