We are very excited to finally see and try one of these professional Mönnig bassoons. This bassoon has been developed by Mönnig over a number of years with the help of Klaus Thunemann, Sergio Azzolini, Frank Forst and others! It is one of the most innovative and interesting bassoons we have seen for a long time.
