We have just finished overhauling this instrument. It was regulated to play cleanly and evenly up and down. The Pads were all replaced during this process. This is a great high end pre-professional bassoon, and because of the high quality fox design, you will find that it will play better than most other brands, and the 220 is one of the best pre-professional models they offer. The Tenon connectors are wax wrappings for added strength and durability.
Cosmetically, this instrument is in Excellent condition and been well taken care of overall. The previous owner took great care with this instrument, but there are a minor few dings and chips in the lacquer in the usual areas from typical use. The silver plating on the instrument is in excellent condition as well, though there are some minor scratches from normal wear. The photos speak for themselves. This instrument plays great, and looks great. The case is a lightly used case in good condition. Also includes a full set of accessories including a silk swab, seat strap, hand crutch, and reed. Please ask any questions about this instrument, we are happy to help. A CVX Bocal is included with this instrument.
**Note that the hand crutch and mount is included with this instrument but was never installed by the previous owner.
