Fox 601 serial number 23389 is for sale at Midwest Musical Imports. This is a great bassoon that has served me well for many years and is now looking for a new home. You can contact Trent at MMI to talk about the horn or to set up a trial.
I am selling my Fox 601 bassoon. I am continuing to downsize my bassoon collection so that I can afford a new horn for myself. This is an amazing instrument that has been used in symphony orchestra for years. I have had this bassoon for 10 years now and it got me through the San Francisco Conservatory and many of my first gigs in San Francisco. My reason for selling this is simply that I like to change my sound every few years and I am looking for something new.
I have found that this bassoon is very flexible and change sounds with different bocals and reed shapes. I can blend with older Heckel bassoons and project for solo playing. I have been most successful with Heckel and Leitzinger bocals with Hertzberg and the Fox #2 shapes. I am selling this with 4 bocals and the Wiseman case; the horn has a little finger whisper key, A flick key to whisper bridge, Ab-Bb trill key and roller on thumb F# and Bb.
Selling for $18,500 or best offer. Feel free to send me an email through the Musical Chairs listing
I am selling my French Bassoon! I have had this bassoon for a few years now and have had so many adventures with it. But in the last year I haven’t really played on it and I have decided to find it a new home. This bassoon has been dated to 1940 but unfortunately bears no makers mark or serial number. The bell shape looks like the Selmer French Bassoons at that time. I am including the bocal that it came with and the music lyre base that was attached to the bell (although I took it off)
You can find the listing for this bassoon on eBay:
