A Fox Renard Artist 250D bassoon for sale in very good condition, made in 2014. The Fox 250 model is a long bore bassoon, similar to the discontinued Fox 220, but with greater projection and tone colours, owing to the fact it is made from a more resonant red maple wood rather than black maple.

The long bore gives the bassoon greater stability of intonation and tone. It has most of the professional range characteristics one would desire from a bassoon but at a mid-range price.

In particular, this bassoon features:

  • Long bore design
  • Precision intonation
  • A free blowing, musical and far reaching sound with easy high notes
  • Silver-plated keywork in good condition
  • Varnish in good condition
  • French-style bell ring
  • Comfortable keywork suitable for advanced playing, including high E key, high D key, right hand thumb rollers, left thumb whisper key lock, alternate right thumb G#, alternate right hand third finger Bb, alternate right hand little finger F#, E-F# and C# trill keys, six rollers in total
  • Metal-lined finger holes extending into the bore to reduce bubbling
  • Two Fox CTC crooks double star R2, nos. 1 and 2
  • Case and case cover in good condition with shoulder strap

This bassoon has received a service in our workshops and is sold here in outstanding playing condition.
