• Originally introduced in 1965, the Renard Model 41 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, the secure acoustical design (and the intonation guarantee that come with it), along with the durable polypropylene body, make this a very popular choice for school music programs and beginning bassoonists.
