22 Nov 2016 United States Heckel bassoon 8XXX

This instrument has unusual French style key-work for the left thumb keys. 
Most notably, a single key is used for low B and Bb. Depressing this key
alone produces Bb, while depressing both this key and the low C key
produces B. Also, alternate thumb keys are provided for left little finger
 Eb and Db. Other keys are fairly standard. This bassoon plays beautifully in all registers. Once one becomes acclimated to it, it is a joy to play. Belonged to my father.
