Fox 920 Contrabassoon Coming Soon!!!

This gorgeous contra is coming in May!  These instruments are on a 16 month wait!  I have ordered this instrument with rollers for the ring finger on the left hand key and the little Eb key above that as on the right thumb Bb and F# keys.

If you’re in the market, you can snatch this up!  I could potentially ship directly to you!  Message me for details.  Thanks!
