Product Description

New in 2014! Model 260
The Renard Artist Thick-Wall model

We're very excited to offer Fox's latest design, a thick-walled advanced bassoon, suited for the conservatory student, or professional player that needs a modern thick-walled design, at a reasonable price!

Mechanically the same as the 240 and 220.
18% Nickel silver keys with silver plating. Full German system with additional high D and E keys. Ring key for wing joint third finger hole. Right hand whisper key lock. Rollers on F, Ab, Eb, Db, right thumb Bb and F#, in combination with a crowned E key. Bb guard. Exclusive to the model 260 Renard A-Whisper bridge with roller! Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing joint and boot joint to prevent water from entering the tone holes. All posts are set with epoxy and spring posts are locked with screws.

Body:
Thick walled design improves stability of tone color and intonation, and provides a richer, more balanced sound than any previous Renard model. Red maple, selected for tone quality, naturally, aged in Fox facilities. Natural rubber linings in the wing joint and small bore of the boot joint. French bell. Body lock.

Accessories:
Deluxe backpack case, neck strap, seat strap, crutch, 2 microfiber swabs, polishing cloth.
