Heckel Bassoon 7416

last updated Tue, 21 Apr 2020 20:21:52 GMT


French whisper key and an unusual alternate A flat key mechanism. Instead of the usual hole with a post through it, the bassoon has a key that goes around the boot joint, thus eliminating the A flat hole on the thumb side of the boot joint. It also has a roller between the whisper key and c sharp key.


Used in in the Dallas Symphony, the Chicago Symphony, the Bergen (Norway) Philharmonic, the New Mexico and Santa Fe Symphony Orchestras.
