The widow of a colleague is selling his Heckel bassoon number 69XX. She lives near Appleton and welcomes calls of inquiry (serious inquiries only). See it while you are at IDRS! The instrument has standard keywork of its day (no high D or E, no rollers). Ivory bell ring. The tone has all of the beauty and colors one expects of a 6000 series Heckel. Scale is very even. Body has wear consistent with the age of the instrument; mechanism works smoothly. Includes two bocals, one a superlative Heckel CC2! Recently overhauled by Jeff Tellock of Appleton. Asking $25,000; will consider reasonable offers. Contact Kathryn Meyer at (920) 720-0179 to try the instrument. I have several photos; email me (Patricia Holland) at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to see them.
