Description: Bassoon - baroque bassoon
415Hz, Copy of Instrument by Thierry Prudent 1760
Made by Peter de Koning
This is the most stunning baroque bassoon I've had the pleasure to play. It has outstanding intonation and a sound like velvet. Conductors exclaim on hearing it they've never heard such a sweet sound.
It is smooth and beautifull hand crafted, a pleasure to hold and touch. It is easy to play and sings in the high register. whoever is lucky enough to purchase this instrument will be forever in love with it.
I unfortunately was forced to retire due to illness. It has performed withthe European Union Baroque Orchestra, Baroque Orchestra and La Petite Bande to name a few.
