A free service within two years for all bassoons and mini bassoons purchased in December 2023!

For sale, a Vinzenz Püchner bassoon in lovely condition.

It is a delightfully sweet, free blowing bassoon that plays with warmth and colour of a very fine pre-war bassoon.

Vinzenz Püchner was the father of the well-known Josef Puchner (founder of the modern day J. Püchner bassoon manufacturing company). Vinzenz Püchner bassoons were built to a very high standard by master craftsmen out of high quality wood.

This is a first class bassoon suitable for playing at a high level, with the playing characteristics of a nice old Heckel bassoon.

This bassoon features:

  • A particularly nice, warm, sound which sings in all registers
  • Good intonation
  • Varnish in lovely original condition
  • A fine piece of wood with the grain showing through the varnish. This is typical of V. Puchner bassoons
  • A good level of key work including a high D key, E-F sharp trill key, C sharp trill, extra B flat, extra G sharp, extra F sharp
  • Nickel plating in perfect condition
  • Joint lock
  • Fox crook
  • Bassoon case in good condition with back straps

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.

For sale on commission on behalf of a private vendor.
