Old wooden Bassoon for repair project
This woodwind is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-09-10)
Price : US $256.00
This is an old wooden bassoon, I think it is maple but I'm not an expert on bassoons. It is not in very good shape and I want to be clear that this is not a good playable bassoon. If you are looking for a bassoon to play on, don't bid on this thing. This is a project horn for either a really good bassoon repair technician who thinks it could be made into a playable instrument or maybe somebody who is studying bassoon repair and needs a cheap horn to practice on. One of the tenons has been replaced, and I don't believe it was done correctly. All of the parts (joints?) are present and as far as I can tell all the keys are there. I don't see any major cracks, but I'm not an expert. There is one bocal, but it is in bad shape. The case is included and it is in fairly good shape.
On the bell, it is stamped: Heinrich Salzer, Schoneck, Made in Germany. Down at the bottom of the bassoon on the cap it is engraved ''Germany USSR Occupied'', so I figure it dates to sometime shortly after WWII.
Again, please don't expect this to be a nice playable bassoon, it's not. It is a repair project, a wall hanger, a lamp, anything you want, but don't buy it an then complain it doesn't play. I have been clear, it's in bad shape.
No returns. Sold as is.
US bidders only please. I will not ship outside US, don't even ask.
