Bassoon Location: Leicester, Leics, England
Description: Bassoon for sale - Moennig 208/4
Used once a week for school lessons until 2006 and then unused since. Just been checked over and in excellent playing condition. No plating wear. Wood excellent and no repairs. The following is an email received from the manufacturer in September 2010:
"The Moennig bassoon with the serial number 17362 is a model 208/4. It was made and finally delivered in March 1999.
It is a standard model with 24 keys and 5 rollers. The metal parts are silver plated. The special thing on this bassoon is the brown colour. Normally these bassoons are darkred stained, but this colour was a special wish of the former customer."
The current equivalant Adler model retails at over £5000 - this one is virtually as good as new!
