A modern French system Buffet Crampon bassoon in as-new condition, made in 1997.
In the years coming up to the 1950s there was a mass switch from playing French system to German system bassoons in the UK. In recent years there has been a significant resurgence in popularity of French system bassoons, thanks to the different tone colours they are able to produce compared to the German Heckel system. Often they are used for playing the music of French composers in a more authentic way, with the 'French' sound.
This is a modern Buffet bassoon made in 1997.
