For sale, a Fox Model IV professional bassoon in great condition. 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.
The Model IV is a hidden gem in the Fox bassoon range. It brings similar outstanding tone quality and playing characteristics as their other top level professional instruments, but at a much more affordable price point.
In particular this bassoon features:
- A brilliant, free blowing and refined sound. Very easy high notes
- The same outstanding intonation found on all professional Fox bassoons
- Keys re-plated professionally, arranged by ourselves
- Polypropylene plastic body in excellent 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 crook
- New Tutti Fagotti gig bag
- 12 months warranty
This bassoon has undergone a full overhaul by us, including re-plating, full repad, professional set up and much more, and is sold in outstanding playing condition.
