Heckel Bassoon SN 6649 Original Keywork! Pre-War! GORGEOUS
Shipping Cost : $55.00
Here is Heckel Bassoon #6649.
The Heckel bassoons are the stuff of legends. Used by more orchestra professionals than any other bassoon, the sound of an older Heckel is unlike anything else in the bassoon world. This one was built right around when Heckel was experimenting with the short bore design, and we are not certain if this bore is short or long, but we did compare it to a Yamaha YFG-811 and it appears to be the same length. This instrument is in excellent condition. It has just been completely gone over by my master technician and is completely ready to play. Keywork is original and unaltered and it is a blank slate for you to modify for your bassoon-playing sensibilities. This instrument may have been refinished at some point. It is branded Heckel on every joint, though we had to look under the magnifying glass to detect the brand on the bell as it is quite faint. Here's a chance to own one of the last unaltered Heckels in existence.
