Description: Bassoon - FOX 222 BASSOON FOR SALE
There are no pictures available for this bassoon
I am selling my Fox Renard 222 Bassoon. It is in excellent condition. There is a nick on the base joint, near the wing joint. The Serial Number is 32xxx, which dates this bassoon to around 2002. This bassoon was completely restored to perfection at the Fox factory in 2012. I have played and cared for this bassoon for the past 5 years. I just upgraded to a Fox 240 bassoon and must part with this instrument. This bassoon is in excellent condition and is ready to play. This instrument plays fantastic. The key spring action is very well balanced; it plays very nicely all thru the complete register with great response and resonance.
The Fox factory restoration done in 2012 brought this bassoon to almost new instrument condition. The restoration work done included a complete re-pad, all keys were cleaned, oiled, and the bassoon was checked for standard Fox layout. Wing joint liner was replaced and the Tenons have had all cork replaced. The bassoon has a Pro U Tube. There is a right hand Ab whisper.
The body is made of Red Maple and has durable synthetic linings in the wing joint and small bore of the boot joint. The bassoon has a German bell with a white ring. The mechanism is made of nickel silver with silver plating. The bassoon has a full German system. Plateau key on wing joint third finger hole. Rollers on F, A(flat), E(flat), and D(flat). Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing joint to prevent water from entering the tone holes. All posts are set in epoxy and spring posts are locked with screws. Hand tuned to A-440 pitch with maximum resonance and projection.
The instrument comes with:
Original hard case: The case is in great shape on the inside and is very structurally sound. The outside of the case has apparent wear on the top and bottom edges.
#3 C Fox Bocal and Seat Strap
I would be glad to answer any questions you might have about the bassoon. I can also send additional pictures if you need.
I want you to be thoroughly satisfied with the instrument.
Selling Price: $4,495 or Best Offer
