This is an early 1960's vintage Josef Püchner bassoon, serial number 5732. This is a fantastic maple bassoon in very good condition. It shows nicks and scratches for its age, and remains a stellar player and is recently adjusted in our shop.
This instrument dates back to the early days of the Püchner factory after being reestablished following World War II. It has been played, but obviously well cared for. I see no cracks in any of the joints. There are two minor cracks in the bell ring, but no cracks in the wood. Pads are newer and the bassoon has been fully adjusted in our repair shop. Everything is sealing perfectly.
If you are looking for a professional wood bassoon at a great price, you'd be hard priced to find a better deal! Comes complete with handrest, bocal, and in a good case.
