The bassoon's unmistakable deep sound blends perfectly with other orchestra instruments - of course, it certainly has no trouble taking center stage as a solo instrument too. When you play the bassoon at a professional level, you need (and deserve) a model that was made with your hard-earned skills in mind. Thankfully, today's professional bassoons are beautifully crafted by respected woodwind manufacturers. From Fox to Yamaha, these brands are championed worldwide for their professional bassoons and they each have models in this catalog.
A lot of time and effort goes into the construction of a bassoon. For this reason, a professional model will be quite the investment, but the payoff is a lifetime of musical fulfillment. If you're searching for a bassoon that is stage ready but won't drain your savings, the Fox Renard Model 260 Bassoon is definitely worthy of a closer look. Designed from red maple, this bassoon delivers exceptional depth and power. Its resonance and intonation is also nothing short of magnificent and it's available in your choice of a German or French bell.
Or maybe you've come here with huge plans to spoil yourself - in which case, we'll point you in the direction of Fox Model 601 Bassoon. From the flamed Yugoslavian mountain maple body to the silver-plated keys and full German system with High D and E keys, simply not enough can be said about this bassoon. It has a thicker wall compared to most other bassoons; there are rollers on F, Ab and Db and its metal tubes extend into the bore in the finger holes to prevent water entry.
And there are many other incredible bassoons here for the advanced player. Be sure to also check out the Yamaha 821 Custom Bassoon: a work of art that was built specifically for soloists. Or, if you're looking to branch out and change up your sound, the Fox Contrabassoon can be found in these pages as well.
