Heckel 6988

This is a beautiful bassoon!  It is a pre war instrument with many great features.  This bassoon has modern key work including a high D key, a high E key, and A bridge.  It also has very well tuned water tubes.  It has been meticulously maintained by Ken Potsic.  The bassoon plays extremely well with great response, resonance throughout, and a very warm pre war sound.  And it’s so nice to look at!!!  You won’t find a bassoon of this vintage that is this ready to play.  It doesn’t need anything!

The bassoon has been played professionally and several auditions have been won by the current owner on this instrument.

It’s being sold with a carbon fiber Wiseman case with a new Heckel bocal.  These can be negotiated out of the price if the buyer prefers.
