• Introduced in 1971, the Renard Model 222 bassoon's long bore design can be identified by its very warm "round" tone, with even balance and excellent intonation throughout the entire range.
  • The reasonable price and durable wooden body make this instrument a popular choice for new bassoonists and school music programs looking to add a wooden bodied instrument to their bassoon section.
