This is one of the earlier Bell bassoons which made such an impression on the bassoon world. It is in perfect condition, has a beautifully even and responsive scale, wonderful sound, solid, well-crafted keywork, and is of the same highest quality workmanship and musical standards of the Benson Bell bassoons recently produced.

Jerry Dagg
Bassoonist, San Francisco Opera Orchestra.
