Maple Bassoon Made in Germany Serial #1299
This woodwind is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-12-11)
Price : US $950.00
This is a very nice looking maple bassoon made in Graslitz Germany...probably a Kohlert or Ernst Riedl. The wood and keywork are in excellent condition. The tenons are solid with no cracks and have been wrapped with white teflon tape to provide a tighter fit during assembly. There are standard rollers on both sets of pinky keys, and a right hand Fox whisper key lock has been added to facilitate low register playing. The bassoon plays from low Bb to high C, but would probably benefit considerably by having some pads replaced or reseated to improve the response. The case is old but solid with new latches, and included are one bocal and a rosewood crutch. Please feel free to ask any questions. Thanks.
