Adam Trussell Double Reeds
Houston Symphony bassoonist and purveyor of double reed instruments, bassoon reeds, and instruction.
This is a great bassoon that has been cared for very nicely. It comes with 2 Puchner bocals in the original case with an Altieri soft case cover as well. There is a high D but no high E key. The finish and plating are in excellent shape for it’s age. My guess is that this bassoon was made sometime in the early 70s. I actually recently purchased a very similar bassoon in much worse condition as a backup project. I feel like these older Puchners are the best kept secret. I plan to restore the one I bought and hope it will be as nice as this one. There is a nice even scale and a good amount of resistance so that you can make a nice warm/dark sound. These German made instruments are very solid.
