Fox Model 685

The Fox Model 685 is built in the style of the 680 but with thicker walls and longer tone holes to produce a darker, more concentrated tone and greater dynamic range. It is a unique design that provides the performer unlimited power as a soloist or member of a large orchestra while preserving the singing quality and flexibility in the tenor register.
