Fox Model 680 Bassoon

A “hybrid” bore bassoon, the Fox Model 680 is designed for versatility. Created to combine the power and depth of “thick wall” bassoons with the singing, flexible, and expressive tonal characteristics of the original Fox bassoons, the Model 680 is a large instrument with a rich, powerful bass and a singing tenor register.
