For sale, a Fox 660D bassoon in red maple second hand.
The Fox 660D is a thick walled, short bore bassoon with slightly wider tone holes than thin walled instruments. The result is a more powerful bassoon, with increased flexibility and nuance to the sound, but without losing the supreme balance Fox professional bassoons bring to intonation and tuning.

It shows outstanding quality of acoustic design and build quality, and is an instrument that can be kept for life and played at the very highest level.
