This pre-war Heckel bassoon has a lovely sound and even scale! This instrument was played by Arthur Kubey, former principal bassoon of the Pittsburgh Symphony and has changed hands a few times since then. It has spent time in schools, and so has lost the original Heckel logo on the bell. Refinished by Hans Moennig, the only evidence of its time in the schools is the serial number scratched into every joint. This is a real Heckel, though, and the U-tube gasket has the original stamping.

This bassoon boasts a great tone and excellent response. Additionally, it possesses a wide dynamic range and will make an excellent instrument for a professional or student alike.

The cash/check price is $25,000; the credit card price is $25,750. Please call our bassoon specialist today to schedule a trial!
