For sale, an older Schreiber 5020 bassoon in good condition.
This 5020 model is an earlier equivalent to the current model Schreiber S16 bassoon with the main difference being no high D key or crook lock. It has a rich tone and good build quality, but with less weight and a more affordable price tag. Schreiber bassoons are widely recommended by bassoon teachers for their robust build quality, resonant sound and dependable intonation.
This bassoon is a special price because of imperfections in the varnish and relatively basic keywork level. It plays very well though, has all of the keys most people ever use, and is a solid instrument suitable for beginners and intermediate players alike.
This is a good make of bassoon, fully overhauled by us and guaranteed, making it a special opportunity if you want a bassoon that plays like new but on a low budget.
This bassoon features:
- Nice free blowing sound, easy response and rich tone
- Good intonation
- Varnish well cared for but has been lightly degraded by UV sunlight over the years, leaving lots of tiny surface lines/imperfections. It is only noticeable upon close inspection and doesn't affect the sound or durability of the bassoon - it is purely cosmetic and we have reflected this in the price
- Nickel plating in very good condition
- Keyed up to high C. Also includes four rollers, extra Ab-Bb-F# keys, two trill keys E-F# and C# trills
- Lined wing bore and boot joint bore on small side
- Part of our Buy Back scheme
- One year warranty
This bassoon has been completely overhauled, including all new corks and felts, all new premium pads, professional keywork set up, multiple bore oil and much more. It is offered for sale in outstanding playing condition.
It comes with a Schreiber crook, a case in decent condition, a silk pull through swab, cork grease and leather neck strap.
