The Fox Renard Artist 220 bassoon is an excellent choice for advancing bassoonists ready to step up to a higher-quality instrument. First introduced in 1972, the Fox 220 produces a warm, rich tone across its range, courtesy of its maple body and bell. Like all Fox instruments, the 220 is expertly crafted, with a full German key system featuring silver-plated keys for smooth action and precise intonation.

Carefully Selected Maple for a Resonant Tone

The 220's maple body is carefully cured and selected to provide resonance and projection. A French bell gives the 220 an attractive accent, producing a focused tone. The wing joint and small bore of the boot are lined to prevent moisture damage, while nickel-silver water tubes stop moisture buildup in the toneholes.

A Full German Key System with Silver-Plated Keys

The 220 offers a full German key system with silver-plated keys for a responsive feel, including rollers for the right little-finger F and Ab and left little-finger Eb and Db. Additional rollers facilitate the right thumb Bb and F#. This model also features a high D, and high E key, and a right hand whisper key lock. Fox lavishes care on their expert keywork, with every key hand-mounted to ensure precision.

Premium Accessories for Convenience

The 220 includes two professional T bocals in #2 and #3 lengths.. A high-quality bassoon reed, hand rest, neck strap, seat strap, care cloth, and microfiber swabs for the wing and boot provide everything needed to begin playing. A premium case with shoulder and backpack straps offers safe transport and storage for the 220 and its accessories.

A Trusted Brand and 2-Year Warranty

Fox Products Corporation was founded in 1949 by Hugo Fox, principal bassoonist for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Fox devoted himself to crafting world-class instruments in the U. S. Today, Fox continues this tradition of excellence.
