Model 201 Short Symphony Bore Bassoon
Fox Products Model 201 Short Symphony Bore Bassoon
ntroduced in 1968, the short bore model of instruments features a tone quality that is more "open" than the long bore. It is voiced to permit the performer to open up and "sing" in solo register, and its tone quality lends itself to solo performance. It was designed and developed under the supervision of Alan Fox in conjunction with prominent bassoonists in major symphony orchestras. Like all Fox bassoons, it features freedom of response, intonation, tonal quality, and projection that will satisfy the requirements of the most discriminating performers.

Body Tiger Striped European Mountain Maple, all wood naturally aged in our own facilities. Natural rubber linings in the wing and small bore of the boot joint. Choice of German (white ring) or French bell (metal ring).

Finish Naturally cured varnish in light mahogany or ebony to enhance the reflections of the maple. Silver plated keys and trim.

Mechanism Nickel silver key parts, hinges, and machined parts. Full German system with high D and E keys. Right hand whisper key lock. Rollers on F, A(flat), E(flat), D(flat). Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing and boot joints to prevent water from entering the tone holes. All spring posts are locked with screws.

Intonation Each Bassoon is tuned individually to a modified just scale, with ample flexibility to accommodate the most demanding requirements. (The design is very flexible and may be used as high as A-443.)

Bocals Numbers 2 and 3, CTX Bore. (Choice of any 2, option of lengths 0 through 4.)




Model 51 Renard Short Reach Bassoon
Fox Products Model 51 Renard Short Reach Bassoon
Originally introduced in 1965, the Renard Model 51 bassoon's long bore design can be identified by its very warm "round" tone, with even balance and excellent intonation throughout the entire range. Like the Model 41, this instrument has a durable body and secure acoustical design. In addition, this model features a compact key mechanism that makes it a popular choice for middle school music programs, those starting on bassoon at a young age, and beginning players with smaller hands.

Mechanism Nickel silver keys with nickel plating. Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing joint to prevent water from entering the tone holes. All posts set in epoxy and spring posts are locked with screws.

Bass E(flat) and D(flat) located closer to other keys for shorter reach. Rollers on E(flat) and D(flat) keys.
