YOUR COST $8,195

Introduced in 1972, the Fox Renard 220 can be identified by its very warm "round" tone, even balance and excellent intonation throughout the entire range. It fits well into both chamber music and orchestral bassoon parts. Like all long bore designs, it features an intonation guarantee that makes it very popular with students and schools.
The body is made of Black Maple, selected for tone and durability, naturally aged in Fox facilities. There are natural rubber linings in the wing joint and small bore of the boot joint. A French bell (metal ring)and body lock are standard. Acrylic Enamel finish. Nickel silver keys with silver plating. Full German system with high D and E keys. Ring key for wing joint third finger hole. Right hand whisper key lock. Rollers on F, A(flat), E(flat), D(flat), right thumb B(flat), and F(sharp), in combination with a crowned E key. B(flat) guard. Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing joint to prevent water from entering the tone holes. All posts set in epoxy and spring posts are locked with screws.Intonation
