I went to my school today (a performing arts high school) in hopes of renting a new bassoon. My ancient Linton certainly wouldn't last long there.
I walked away with this, their best school instrument, and I'm ecstatic. It'll take me a while to get used to the whisper key lock, but otherwise remarkable. I love the tone, and it's a lot easier to produce fluid dynamics. I'm hoping that this bassoon (along with some practice) will get me into the LYO Symphony Orchestra this fall!
When I told my teacher (a veteran orchestral player and die-hard Moosmann fanatic) about receiving this bassoon, he told me I was really lucky. I can see why!
These bassoons are truly impeccable. The action is smooth and crisp, with no sluggish springs or pads, and a shiny nickel silver finish that requires no polishing. The pads are durable and well-sealing, and last for a long period of time before drying out. The finish of the instruments is simplistically beautiful. It is a vibrant burnt red stain over an attractive natural grain, with a durable and shiny laquer over the top. As far as the sound goes, it is rich, warm and round, with a big, focused feel to it. The high register really sings out, especially with a CVX bocal.
This bassoon was my first experience in the world of bassoons and all I can say is that I loved every minute of it! This bassoon is super forgiving in it's sound, it made me sound better than a beginner. It is super mellow and plays beautiful pianissimo, but can still play fortissimo if the passage calls for it. The keys were easy to work and worked like a charm. I love that it came with two bocals because there were some reeds that needed that adjustment without me having to go out and buy one. I felt that the construction was very sturdy and I was not afraid of falling to pieces, considering how cheap it is compared to many bassoons on the market. It stood the test of time as I carried it to band rehearsals, ensemble rehearsals, practiced solo music, and church music rehearals. Sadly, I was renting my college's bassoon and it is not mine. I hope one day to buy this great instrument and own it for myself.
I do not own a Renard 222 but I use one at school. Our school owns 4 of them and I can clearly see why. The 222 is a FANTASTIC bassoon. Let's face it, either you are Bill Gates or you work as a bassoonist if you own a professional bassoon because they are so darn expensive. But really my friends, you won't notice anything lower here. My teacher has a $20,000+ professional fox and he wants one of these now. This is fantastic purchase. If you don't want to spend $20,000+ this is the bassoon for you. Don't let the "student" label confuse you, this is the real deal. The only other option I could recommend would be a Fox polypropylene bassoon (plastic type material) because they are weather resistant and are also fabulous instruments but this bassoon is still better. Polypropylene is just less hassle but I live in California so my bassoon doesn't get dry from cold weather and crack. But again this is a brilliant instrument.
I have played on many bassoons while I was looking to buy my own. This horn was the best one for the price range I was looking at. I was playing on my schools schreiber and sohne bassoons and they were super old and couldnt hit anything below a low F and anything above a high Bb. The first time I played the Fox Renard Model 222 Bassoon I almost cried! My tone immediately was improved and it was alot easier to hit all the notes throught my range. If your looking for a bassoon for a cheap price I would definately go with this one. You wont be sorry!
