For sale, a Schreiber S16 bassoon stamped 'Mirafone' with a lovely sound. This bassoon was made by Schreiber in Germany, and imported by the well known Mirafone company with their own stamp. Mirafones are particularly nice examples of Schreiber bassoons, manufactured specially for Mirafone with unique upgrades. They have particularly elegant and unusual dark varnish which is eye catching, an extra E flat trill key, plus other non-standard upgrades for the time including rubber-lined finger holes extending into the bore.
This bassoon is lovely to play on, and is easily suitable to get you to grade 8 and beyond.
