This is a gorgeous vintage S31 Professional Bassoon. It features silver plated keys and is in excellent overall condition. It has all a full professional keywork system to play any repertoire with ease. This instrument is similar to the model S16 conservatory, but in addition, it is equipped with a large Bb/F# key guard plate and a high E key on the wing joint.
The key mechanism is handmade, i.e. it is especially made for each instrument. Even the smallest inaccuracies can thereby be avoided. The keywork is mounted with rod screws and head pivot screws. Thus it is stabilised and side noises are avoided. Due to the handmade keywork, this model offers very high playing comfort.
An excellent professional level option for advancing or high-level Bassoon players. This particular example is in excellent condition throughout and like all pre-owned instruments it has been fully checked, serviced and set-up in our specialist woodwind workshop prior to sale. The instrument comes with two bocals, the hand rest and the original hard case.
