Personal bassoon used in high school and first two years of college! Bassoon is in GREAT condition. Brand new without upgrades listed at $8999.50.
Has been serviced yearly by Keith Bowen (see fixbassoon *dot*com). Several upgrades/customizations added by Keith valuing $1,785.00 (and shown in pictures): joints have been corked, whisper key lock added, whisper key soldered to high A bridge, pancake key with two rollers toward F# and Bb, little finger G# roller, and right hand guard. Also, I have removed the crutch; it slows down finger movement and inhibits fast playing. However, I still have the crutch, so you can attach if you prefer it.
Two bocals (CVX #2 and #3), seat strap, reed case all included. Nice, hard case ($350 value).
Note: this bassoon is used. It has some nicks and bumps from being used. It's got character! The scuffs DO NOT affect playing, tone, or performance of bassoon. Silver will need buffing.
This bassoon has been well loved and well played. It served me well when I played with Bremerton Symphony, Bainbridge Island Symphony Orchestra, Auburn Symphony, New York University Wind Symphonia, New York Young Professionals Orchestra, American Symphony, and others!
