The Howarth Academy Student bassoon is the perfect instrument for taking a student up to college level.
Main product description
The Howarth Academy Student bassoon is Howarth’s flagship bassoon. It is ideal for students and has a stable intonation and beautiful tone.
Howarth’s bassoons are manufactured in Germany from matured smooth mountain maple wood from the Bosnia, where the climate makes for extremely dense wood.
The Howarth Academy Student bassoon has a left-hand thumb crook lock, a high D-key, a low C touch key, 4 rollers from F to Ab for the right-hand little finger, and C# to Eb for the left-hand little finger, and no Bb for the right hand 3rd finger. The bore of the wing and both sides of the boot joint are lined for extra protection. All of the finger holes are lined in hard rubber. All the key work is silver-plated.
Howarth supplies all of its bassoons with a Tutti Fagotti case, EM reed case for three reeds, sling, silk pull-throughs, La Tromba cork grease and one Moosmann P2W crook.
