Fox Model 201 Bassoon

One of the original Fox professional bassoons, the Model 201 is a modern version of one of Hugo Fox’s original designs. The Fox Model 201 is a “short bore” bassoon that is known for being light and for offering flexibility and sonority in the upper register, which lends itself to expressive performances.
