Topic: Gebruder Monnig Artist Special Bassoon
Just had a young student buy one of these. Seems to play pretty well (I briefly tried it out), especially considering price. Does anyone have any idea what bocals might be a good fit? There is one Moennig Bocal included with this bassoon, but I'm not familiar with the Moennig Bocals at all. Are they of decent quality? Budget of this student probably allows for a replacement bocal...would a Fox R2 CVX 2 be a likely good fit? This instrument apparently was displayed in a Doctor's Office for several years..was purchased new in the early 1990s. Body, pads and keywork in very good condition. Would bore oiling, or a complete oil bath, be indicated? Thanks for any thoughts or information..
