We overhauled this instrument about with new pads. It plays cleanly and evenly up and down and the pads are pristine. It is ready to go and will last for years. The plating is nickel, and has spotting on the plating, which is only a cosmetic issue. A Fox CVX Bocal is included with this instrument.
Cosmetically, this instrument looks great from an audience perspective, but there are still some imperfections on the finish on the wood, mostly henpecks a few some small chips in the lacquer that are highlighted in the photos below. That said, the photos speak for themselves. This instrument plays great, and looks great. The case is from Protec. Also included is a silk swab, seat strap, hand crutch, and reed. Please ask any questions about this instrument, we are bassoonists and are happy to help. (please note in the photos some of the keyguards had not been installed yet, they will come installed on the instrument.)
