"THE GRANDFATHER OF FOX BASSOONS, THE MODEL II IS A MODERN VERSION OF THE ORIGINAL FOX DESIGN. PATTERNED AFTER THE BASSOONS PLAYED BY HUGO FOX IN THE CHICAGO SYMPHONY, THE MODEL II FEATURES A ROUND, CLEAR, DARK TONE THAT BLENDS WELL WITH OTHER INSTRUMENTS."
We are so excited to be able to have a great, professional-level bassoon in stock! This bassoon was born all the way back in 1958, and our professional woodwind technician put in quite a bit of work to get this old bird back into good playing condition. They re-padded the entire instrument, and the bassoon also needed a tenon graft. After quite a bit of time with this instrument, the repairs were complete and our technician gave it their seal of approval, making it ready for sale. The cost of a new version of this same instrument is over $20,000, so we do not expect an instrument of this caliber to last on our shelves very long. It includes 2 bocals and a brand new Protec case. Come check it out before it's gone!
