We have just taken delivery of the first Moosmann “Performer” bassoon. This is a brand new model exclusively made for Richard Craig Woodwind for the Australian market. It’s an intermediate model for advanced students at high school and university. High grade curly mountain maple with a durable lacquer finish, silver plated keys, high E, left hand E flat and … stirling silver finger tubes!
The instrument looks great and first impressions are that it makes a very full, rich, German style sound. Very free blowing and even in response. I reckon this is an instrument that professionals would be happy to play on. Play test video coming soon – watch this space.
