2021 – Our 10th Anniversary Year
2021 is our 10th year of trading as a limited company. We established the company formally in September 2011, immediately after Oliver Ludlow graduated from Cardiff University and decided to turn a hobby of trading in bassoons during his student years into a career. We will be holding some celebrations later in the year, but for now it is worth just reflecting on those years.
2020 in focus
Who’d want to run a small business in 2020? With the Federation for Small Business forecasting that a quarter of a million small businesses will cease trading as a result of the pandemic, it hasn’t been (and isn’t) easy for anyone.
The bassoon sanctuary
Just like the elephant, the bassoon is long-lived. It accumulates memories of pieces played, owners had, places been and, for some, just like the elephant, that may include a difficult period where it is no longer wanted or needed. Or, more happily, it may just need some loving care and attention from time to time during its well-lived life, to help it on its way. A Bassoon Sanctuary is open to all – old and young, neglected and cherished, hardly used, and those with the accumulated marks of life.
Zoom and Skype Bassoon Consultations now Available!
The latest lockdown is putting much of life on hold again, but it doesn’t have to stop you investigating, trying and even buying your next bassoon. We are now carrying out consultations and demonstrations over Zoom and Skype, where we can discuss the bassoon(s) you are interested in and interactively demonstrate them to you.
Customer care is our top priority and we work hard to provide a friendly, professional service. Our expert staff have detailed knowledge of all the instruments in stock and can offer pre- and post-sales advice.
