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