Comments about Fox Model 601 Bassoon:

It has served me very well, itÆs a great tool to further my career and ill play mine for many years, the pitch, response, tone, and registers are fluid and very easy, no need to push or over bend certain notes. I can usually on an average day play to a G5 or G on top of treble, and although IÆm sure IÆll probably never need to itÆs a nice range limit. I would highly suggest a 601 to anyone who could afford one.
