A Kreul & Moosmann bassoon for sale second hand. This is a fine quality bassoon with professional keywork and a warm, powerful sound. Kreul and Moosmann collaborated after they took over the Kohlert bassoon factory in Germany. They made some very nice instruments in that time, until Moosmann took over the bassoon making entirely, giving birth to the prestigious Moosmann bassoon company as we know it today. This bassoon is similar to a Moosmann 200 bassoon in terms of keywork and specification and plays really well.
