Heckel 4535

This is a beautiful Heckel from 1905.  It has been refinished and modernized with all the necessary keywork including rollers, a high D key, and a high E key.  It has a left thumb whisper key lock which many people prefer over the right thumb whisper key lock.  This bassoon has a beautiful finish.  It’s a gorgeous instrument and great piece of history.

One of the hardest things about restoring an older heckel is getting the finish and keywork to be done by a repair person.  It takes a long time and it’s expensive.  Both are done on this bassoon!

Check it out!  Thanks!
