Polisi Standard Wood Bassoon Serial #424
Additional Information: This is a great wood bassoon! It is in very good condition and has been to the shop in 2016 where it had pads that needed to be replaced, re-alignments and regulating done, and any other adjustments that were needed at the time. The locking pin handle that allows you to easily lift and lower the pin is broken off and not included but the pin still will move in and out as it should. The vent key for the bocal is adjustable. It has rarely been touched since it was adjusted so it should still be in great playing condition. We are not bassoon players so we cannot put it through all of its paces to double check. However, if we feel that it played well for us with our limited ability it should play great for a real bassoon player!
