Fox Model II Professional Wood Bassoon SN 661 EARLY MODEL! EXCELLENT
This is a VERY NICE Fox Model II professional bassoon.
Fox is the best American maker of bassoons and oboes, and this is an excellent example of an early model II. 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. There are no cracks, repaired or otherwise, though there is a little varnish wear (see photos). There is some wear on the keys, but the instrument looks fantastic. Pads feel good and have just been adjusted, and this bassoon plays great.These very early Foxes are highly regarded - a client of mine purchased one on the spot after playing it and put his Wolf in the closet!
