Description: Bassoon - Puchner? Bassoon
Bassoon-says on it 'made in germany' and serial# 1399.Also says 'SUDETENGAU' under boot cap. It didn't have a boot cap when I bought it. Tried several and the off my more modern Puchner fitted perfectly. Emailed Puchner factory who said it could be one of there's as they stamped Sudetengau between 1938-1945 and allowed importer to stamp their own logo up until 1960. After that date it's always stamped Puchner. They couldn't be certain as all their records for that period were lost.
It's in lovely condition. Repairer said it's top quality maple with natural 'tiger stripes' in wood. Nickel silver keywork is unplated as was the custom then. Dark brown varnish has some wear. Comes with case,handrest and HECKEL CC2 bocal.
