Price: 25.000 euro
Extremely rare 8-key bassoon built by Giuseppe Berti (Bologna) oboist and flautist, pupil of Baldassarre Centroni and in the period between 1823/25 he
will replace Prof. Centroni both in the Orchestra of the Teatro Comunale in Bologna and Liceo Musicale. This instrument a copy of a Grancer bassoon
equipped with two original crooks, original leather case and plywwood case built by me. As show in the foto ,the instrument has medium pieces, one for
intonation 430 and one intonation 440. The pads have been replaced on the
instrument and the patina of time has been maintained. The instrument was personally tested by Prof. Alberto Grazzi, Lorenzo Alpert, Alberto Guerra e
Alberto Santi. On request I can send other photos.
