Description: Bassoon - ++++ Fox Model 201 ++++
There are no pictures available for this bassoon
Fox Model 201, purchased by seller in 1987, played professionally in Columbus, OH Civic Orchestra, State Orchestra of Mexico, US Air Force Band Over Mid-America. I went on an eight-day tour with the US Air Force Band playing Mozart's Concerto in Bb with great success. Full German system plus high D and E keys. Left hand whisper key lock hand-crafted by James Laslie when it was bought new. Sliver-plated keys. Not many rollers (see pictures) for less finger travel (what I always preferred). Impecabbly maintained with only a couple minor bumps on the "seat side" of the boot joint. I am selling it because I just no longer get a chance to play it with 4 kids and a busy life that no longer involves playing for a living. This horn would play professionally without doubt. Serial number 14474. More pictures available upon request. At this price, includes Fox C number 1 bocal and one Heckel CD number 1 bocal. I have available for purchase a pre-war bocal at an additional $1,000. It is a CC, number 2 and is best matched for the instrument.
