Fox Model 685

A “hybrid” bore bassoon, the Fox Model 685 was created to combine the power and depth of “thick wall” bassoons with the singing, flexible, and expressive tonal characteristics of the original Fox bassoons. The Model 685 is a modern bassoon with a powerful and stable tone throughout the entire range of the instrument. This bassoon features updated tone hole locations to facilitate more reliable pitch centers.
