Topic: HECKEL BASSOON DATA SITE

Does anyone know what the problem is with the Heckel Bassoon site which lists the serial numbers, etc.?  It has been down for almost a week that I know of.  Is it a server problem or are they down for good?

Hi Robert:
It is down for me too.  I don't know anything about it but thought I would share these 2 sites in case this helps--not quite the same but could be useful.  Kent

Re: HECKEL BASSOON DATA SITE

Who is responsible for collecting the data on Heckel bassoons?  Is there a list of who owns what Heckel bassoon?

Hi Cober:
If you look under the "legal statement" at the bottom of the page it lists Mike Frederick as a possible author.  You could contact him (Sorry, I don't have any contact info).  I haven't seen a list of owners and if he has it he probably doesn't publish it on line for privacy concerns.  Kent

The site is a great resource. It has not been updated for a long time though.

Re: HECKEL BASSOON DATA SITE

It is a very helpful resource generally. However, some of the information is not correct. Some of our Heckel bassoons have found their way on there:

and the photographs have been of the wrong instrument. It is isn't easy to get the information corrected. I would recommend this site be used as a general guide rather than an exact or exhaustive database.

It must take some work updating though, so I take my hat off to the owner of the website!

True, I use it quite often and recently spotted an error. I need to get back on that one, I don't remember what it was, but it was an error. I have never heard back from the owner of the site, too many questions I suppose.
