Topic: Question about a slightly used Schreiber S54
My son, who is beginning high school in the fall, has learned about a slightly used Schreiber S54 bassoon that was purchased in 1970 by a music instructor in Lexington. We have not had the chance to try out the instrument yet, but I am trying to get some information about the quality of this model. I'm not finding much online, other than to find some other used ones for sale. Can anyone tell me where this model is on the spectrum between beginner and professional? Does the model have a good reputation? My son has expressed an interest in playing in college so I am interested if this instrument would carry him through. I would greatly appreciate any insight.
