Price : US $1,080.
This is a vintage Sonora bassoon, made in Germany. I am not sure what year the bassoon was made (I am guessing between the 50's and the 70's). I have had this bassoon for 22 years. It was initially rented from the Latvian Music Conservatory in Riga, Latvia (in the former Soviet Union) in 1984, when I first entered music school. Between 1984 and 1991, I learned the bassoon and played in a professional band. In 1991, I purchased the bassoon from the conservatory and brought it with me to the U.S. I played this bassoon in the mid 90's in the Georgia Tech concert band. Since 1996, the bassoon has traveled with me, but I haven't played it much and now ready to pass it on. Functionally, the bassoon is excellent. The tone is excellent. Cosmetically, it could use some help. The decorative ring on the top tube came off. Otherwise, the issues are mostly small cosmetic nicks and scratches. The box also needs some help. Selling with no reserve. The bassoon is also for sale locally. Please feel free to email with questions or for additional pictures. I can also be reached at 917 327 2622. If you have feedback issues (zero or negative), please email me to let me know you're bidding.
