A Puchner Model 22 bassoon in mint condition (like new). It does not show any signs of ever having been played. The Model 22 is a top professional instrument, equivalent to the well known Model 23 but with a few less extras (although still well kitted out).
This Model 22 is very much a soloist model: with a big sound, fantastic projection and superb intonation, this is one of the nicest sounding Puchner bassoons we have seen for a long time
This bassoon is suitable for professional playing, but would also be perfect for an aspiring student looking for a first rate instrument to support their playing career.
