Originally introduced in 1965, the Renard Model 41 bassoon's long bore
design can be identified by its very warm "round" tone, with
even balance and excellent intonation throughout the entire range.
The reasonable price, the secure acoustical design (and the intonation
guarantee that come with it), along with the durable body, make this
a very popular choice for school music programs and beginning bassoonists.
Polypropylene, molded with critical dimensions machine finished.
Body lock. Nickel silver keys with nickel plating. Full German system.
Additional High D key available as an option. Plateau key on wing
joint third finger hole. Rollers on F, A(flat), E(flat), and D(flat).
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.
Individually hand tuned to A-440 pitch with maximum resonance and projection. Includes your choice of any 2 Fox C bocals.
Accessories include a fine plush-lined case, 2 reeds, seat strap, crutch, 2 drop swabs.
