Fox Model I Professional Bassoon SN 1643 EARLY MODEL! AMAZING PLAYER
Shipping Cost : $45.00
This is a VERY NICE Fox Model I professional bassoon.
Fox is the best American maker of bassoons and oboes, and this is an excellent example of an early model I. Fox's manufacturing is excellent. Intonation is very good, action is terrific, and these bassoons sound good enough to play in any professional setting. This particular one is in very good condition. It has the high D key. There are no cracks, repaired or otherwise, though there is a fair amount of varnish wear (see photos). There is some wear on the keys, but the instrument looks great, though with some honest wear. Pads feel good and have just been adjusted. This bassoon plays great. These early Foxes are sleepers - a local bassoonist tried an early Model II and bought it on the spot and then put his recent Wolf into the closet. A great way to have an affordable, top quality bassoon.
