For sale, a Fox Model IV professional bassoon in unused, mint condition. This bassoon was bought new two years ago for a younger child, but the bassoon proved much too big for her and it was unplayed. It comes with all the accessories as provided by Fox and is essentially a brand new bassoon.
The Fox Model IV is made from specially formulated polypropylene plastic, which resonates in a similar way to maple wood. The Model IV is acoustically based on the Fox Model II professional wooden bassoon, and has the same amazing sound. Like the Model II it is one of Fox's long bore design professional level bassoons, meaning it has a fractionally narrower, longer bore for greater pitch and tonal stability.
In particular this bassoon features:
- A nice, free blowing and refined sound. Easy high notes
- The same outstanding intonation found on all professional Fox bassoons
- Polypropylene plastic body in mint condition
- Silver plating in mint condition
- Good level of keywork including high D key, four rollers, alternate right hand 3rd finger Bb, alternate right hand little finger F#, alternate right hand thumb G#/Ab, C# trill, E-F# trill
- Fox T1 and T2 crooks in perfect, unused condition
- Original Fox case (standard Marcus Bonna professional case badged Fox) in perfect condition, with back straps and rain cover
This bassoon's keywork has been re-greased by us but did not need anything further, and is sold perfect playing condition.
For sale on commission on behalf of a private vendor.
