Renard Artist Model 240 Bassoon

A trusted favorite by teachers and students alike, the Renard Artist Model 240 is a popular intermediate bassoon choice. The Model 240 is a “short bore” bassoon that is known for being a flexible, free blowing instrument with a strong “singing” quality that most often suits bassoonists looking for an instrument with a bold tone and soloistic qualities. This bassoon is a great choice for advanced students in high school through college, serious amateurs, and advanced school programs.
