Topic: Renting and/or buying student bassoon

Hi, All -

Just wondered if you have any recommendations for renting a good student bassoon (hopefully in the NYC area) and what would be the standard (ballpark) monthly fee for this.  Also, wondered if anyone's selling a student level bassoon. Please either contact me directly (jyjeter@lycos.com) or here. Thanks in advance for any future response/help. And Happy Holidaze to All!  Jim

Re: Renting and/or buying student bassoon

Hello Jim,

I have three bassoons that I have for sale, one is a Fox Model III (12,018) from around 1984.  It has a High D and E and a Right hand rotary lock and all new pads.  I also have a newer Renard 41 (32,100) with a high D and right hand standard lock.  Both horns have pro-tubes and are in very good shape.  The last horn is a Polisi bassoon with lots of options, High D, E, Ab/Bb trill, low C#D# trill and low B mute.  It also has all new pads.  All three will sell in the $3500 range.  I"m in Tucson until the new year and the horns are at my home in Northville.
