Topic: "Guy Humphrey" bassoon?
I have an older bassoon that has the "brand" name of "Guy Humphrey"
on the Bell.
It also says "made in West Germany" on it, and a serial # of 1268 (tiny, may be wrong #).
It is dark wood, tiger striped.
The keys are different from the only other bassoon I ever played (in the '70's in Jr. High School, a Linton.)
The Bell ring is white (broken off, can't tell if it is plastic or ivory - outside has dull color, inside bright white)
I bought it about 7 years ago off e-bay for $350 ..!
It plays, but does need some work.
It looks to me to be pretty old, but I am not sure HOW old - 30 years +-
I cannot find this "brand" by web search.
Does anyone have data on it at all, its value, etc?
