Fox Renard bassoons are the instruments of choice for both students and teachers across the US. Their even, consistent scales make them usable by even the youngest players, and their tone quality sets them apart from the competition. Their combination of quality and affordability blows the competition away.
The Renard Model 222 is the entry-level wooden instrument. The Renard bassoons feature a select, aged Maple body. The 222 takes its design cues from the Model II, a professional-level long bore instrument. This bassoon retains the bore length and wall thickness. As a result, it is a great entry point for wooden bassoons. The warm tone, even intonation, and easy response are hallmarks of the 222. Like all Fox bassoons, this instrument has silver plating on all key work.
The 222 features a plateau key for the left hand third finger; additionally, it has a thumb Ab key on the boot, as well as rollers for both little fingers. This instrument lacks high D and E keys. These missing keys allow the instrument more affordability and accessibility, but it is not ideal for more advanced players.
This instrument features several key work options that MMI regularly orders. These added keys advance the playing level of the bassoon, but do have a slightly higher price. All higher levels also feature the options of the lower levels.
222D: Adds a high D key.
222D+: A ring C key replaces with the plateau key; standard on intermediate and professional instruments.
222D++: A right hand whisper key lock (type 1) is added.
This bassoon comes with a Fox C2 and C3 bocal. Additionally, it comes in a Tutti Fagotti case.
