Originally introduced in 1965, the Fox Model IV bassoon's long bore design can be identified by its very warm "round" tone, with even balance and excellent intonation throughout the entire range. The secure acoustical design and the durable body material make this an economical choice for schools, university music programs, and individuals seeking a second instrument. Budget conscious purchasers of a first instrument also find this a popular choice.

Body
Polypropylene, hand finished. Body lock.

Mechanism
Nickel silver keys with nickel plating. Full German system with high D key. Ring key for wing joint third finger hole. 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. All posts set in epoxy and spring posts are locked with screws.

Intonation
Individually hand tuned to A-440 pitch with maximum resonance and projection.

Numbers 1 and 2, CVX Bore. ( Choice of any 2, option of lengths 0 through 4.)
