STUDENT BASSOONS: Students need reliable well adjusted bassoons as well as experienced players. The student can't tell whether a problem is with the bassoon or themselves. When a beginner has had it with rentals and school instruments, it may be time to own their first bassoon. These include Fox entry level bassoons, Kohlert (German), Moennig, Huller, etc. As they become available, these could include stenciled bassoons from other manufacturers as well. All student bassoons are either in good maintained condition or overhauled and delivered in new playing condition. Included is an original case in good to excellent condition or a new lightweight Protec case, one bocal, and basic accessories. Additions and substitutes are available. The sale price includes a 1 year warranty. These bassoons are typically priced from approximately $3000-$6000. Please call for the current availability of student bassoons. (914) 478-0946
