Fox 201D bassoon for sale second hand in great condition. The Fox 201D model has been tried, tested and widely loved by professional players worldwide for decades. The 201D is Fox's short bore design, which gives greater dynamic range and flexibility to the sound.
This particular instrument was made in 1988 and is of high build quality. There is a significant following for Fox professional bassoons thanks to their even, resonant sound and easy playing characteristics. This is a great soloist orchestral instrument but also versatile in other settings.
