A Püchner Model 21 bassoon for sale second hand in great condition, with a beautiful sound. This is a first class professional instrument with a particularly even scale and rich tone. It is in very good condition and is a unusually elegant bassoon to look at too.
The Püchner Model 21 bassoon was equivalent to the Model 23 but with a few less keys. They are very highly regarded and widely played instruments of quality construction.
It is a professional instrument of outstanding flexibility, capable of playing in all kinds of musical settings with ease. If you are looking for a bassoon for life then you should strongly consider this bassoon.
This bassoon has been completely overhauled including all new pads, corks and felts, professional keywork set up with new greased pivots, bore oiled multiple times, and much more. It is offered for sale in outstanding condition.
The bell joint has been cracked and repaired and we have reflected this in the price. The repair can be seen in the photographs. We did not carry out the repair, but it appears professionally done, solid, and unlikely to ever be an issue again.
Ordinarily this model would be a lot more money second hand, so if you are looking for a professional bassoon that plays incredibly well without breaking the bank, then this bassoon is for you.
