A fantastic bassoon - made and plays to an exceptional standard.
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.
It is very well made; the key mechanism is handmade 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.
