Fox Professional Model 201 Bassoon

The Fox Model 201 was designed for principal players who prefer maximum flexibility and sonority in the upper register. First offered in 1968, the 201 is light and fits comfortably in the player's hands. Favoring the middle and upper partials tonally, it is responsive and lends itself to expressive performances.
