Beautiful 7xxx series bassoon. Fully overhauled and converted to conventional Heckel system (previously world system) in house by Neil Allen. Current images are before conversion
£25,000.00 Reserved
BN10182 BN10182 Heckel 9xxx World System
Sold as seen, we have not done any work on this instrument. It has been played professionally until very recently including in the Philharmonia and ENO. This bassoon has an excellent sonorous tenor and rich tone. This instrument is World System, so will require getting used to the different lower octave fingerings. We can quote to convert to full German system if the buyer wished to do so once the sale was completed, although we would recommend leaving as is. Supplied in Pink MB case and WITHOUT crooks. An exciting bassoon for the right player.
