19TH CENTURY BASSOON
Museum quality, fine 19th century bassoon, possibly made in Dresden, restored and maintained by Robin Howell and more recently Leslie Ross in 2011 with a linseed oil bath, fitting of keys and bumpers and complete cleaning. High A, C and D keys and Low E Flat.
This bassoon has no maker's stamp, and there is a capital F carved carefully on the inside curve of the wing joint (see photos). Evidence of much playing has been burnished into the beautiful naturally flamed maple. There is a fracture in the bell ring. This instrument was played for many years over a period of two centuries and has a rich, stable and warm tone. Comes with two bocals by Leslie Ross.
