Originally introduced in the early 1960s, the Fox Model III 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 secure acoustical design and the durable, cosmetically pleasing body make this a popular choice with military groups, university music programs, schools, individuals seeking a second instrument, and first time buyers interested in a high level of acoustical and cosmetic refinement combined with durability.
The body is made of Polypropylene, hand finished, with silver plated reinforcing bands resembling the wooden instruments. A body lock is standard. The keywork is made of nickel silver with silver plating. Full German system with high D key. Right hand whisper key lock. Rollers on F, A(flat), E(flat), and D(flat). Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing and boot joints 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. Bocals included: Numbers 2 and 3, CVX Bore. (Choice of any 2, option of lengths 0 through 4.)
