Polypropylene Body
An ideal instrument for younger middle school players. The modified keywork is adapted for younger players with small hands. Not recommended for high school and older players.
Introduced in 1964, it uses the same body as a model 41 bassoon. The long bore design gives a warm sound and it’s excellent scale will help a beginning bassoonist get off to a good start. It is a full sized bassoon made for small hands. The biggest difficulty of young players is attempting to handle a large instrument with small hands.

Body
Polypropylene, long bore, molded with critical dimensions machined finished. Body Lock.

Mechanism
Nickel silver keys with nickel plating. Modified German system. Rollers on F, A(flat), E(flat), and D(flat). Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing joint to prevent water from entering the tone holes. Spring posts locked with screws.

Wing Joint Modifications - No High D Key. A plateau key on the third finger hole helps reduce the finger stretch.

Boot Joint Modifications - No C(sharp) trill key. No Thumb G(sharp) key. No B(flat) trill key. Finger keys are moved closer together to eliminate the wide stretches. Crutch is not provided.

Bass Joint Modifications - Low E(flat) and D(flat) keys are moved to a better position for small hands.

Further details can be found on the Fox website.

Cosmo Music's Quality Assurance:

Wind Instruments

  1. Unpack instrument removing all corks used to stabilize keys during shipment.
  2. Leave the instrument to allow the pads to "relax".
  3. A visual inspection is done to ensure the finish is at factory standards.
  4. Lubricate corks with factory approved grease.
  5. Check and adjust the fit of components to ensure a firm, but not excessive pressure is needed to assemble; out of the box many corks are too tight and the player could easily cause damage to parts by having to apply too much pressure.
  6. Inspect the key action.
  7. Check pad coverage and adjust where necessary.
  8. Check all key combinations for proper adjustment.
  9. Play-test each instrument throughout its entire range to confirm all adjustments are correct.
  10. All instruments are played with the technician's own mouthpiece or head joint, unless it is not appropriate (in the case in which the mouthpiece or headjoint is unique to the instrument, they are thoroughly cleaned after play-testing).
  11. The case is checked for proper fit.
  12. Factory supplied accessories are inspected to ensure all are present.
  13. Large saxophone keys may be refitted with shipping corks to increase stability for transit.
  14. The instrument is repacked as it was received.
  15. Technician signs the tag to confirm that all details have been completed.
